In its complexity, Brad Mehldau’s residency at the Philharmonie reflects the essence of this highly versatile artist: after a duo recital with the tenor Ian Bostridge and a symphonic excursion featuring Mehldau’s piano concerto, the pianist closes his Luxembourg season with colleagues of his trio of many years. He is incessantly at work, inventing a new grammar for the instrument and conjugating the verb «to play» with all its subtle implications. An evening with Mehldau is more than a piano recital, for as a witness to his ingenious intellectual brainstorms, born of curiosity and his talent for improvisation, the listener approaches the origins of jazz, as Vincent Cotro will explain in his introductory lecture (in French) at the Espace Découverte at 19:15.

«Brad Mehldau is an aristocrat among jazz pianists and like all the best artists, he never stops growing.» (The Telegraph)
