Summary

One of the great improvisers of contemporary jazz piano, Brad Mehldau premieres a new piano concerto, commissioned by Britten Sinfonia and the Barbican.

Brad is a pianist that’s really able to get under the skin of the music. He finds new beauty in old melodies – not just with jazz standard, but also in his interpretations of Bach, Bluegrass and Radiohead.
