Now Playing:

The Artistry of... Brad Mehldau

A true champion of the ensemble, sensitive to the players around him he plays with instead of in front and that is about sharing. He does that so well. His music is a mash up of classical training and popular music influence which could not be ignored considering his age and the world around him. Whether it’s his own or arrangements, carefully done to preserve the context of the original, he is in focus. Soulful, playful, intricate, complex and always accessible…the essence of an artist who shares effortlessly.

From forays into his Classical music foundations with The Brady Bunch Variations for Piano and Orchestra and a song cycle with soprano Renée Fleming, to collaborations with Pat Metheny  - Meldau is as rounded as you would want a contemporary  musician to be.
