Visiting UK artists from Okeanos join an extended Continuum ensemble for a sensational experience from the sonic fringe.

Brad Mehldau – Solo

Mehldau combines his signature technical ability and command of structure and rhythm in his Three Pieces After Bach, a new work co-commissioned by The Royal Conservatory of Music/Koerner Hall, Carnegie Hall, The Dublin National Concert Hall, and Wigmore Hall. In the balance of the program, Mehldau juxtaposes several canonical pieces from The Well-Tempered Clavier, featuring his own jazz compositions for solo piano — a rarity of expression by this masterful improviser.
