|Dennis Russell Davies Keith Jarrett: Ritual Limited 180gram Vinyl LP
Ritual has been long out of the catalogue and is now re-released on 180g vinyl alongside its first ever outing on CD. To listen to Ritual is akin to experiencing the core of a Jarrett solo concert. The interpreter may be different, but the lyrical expression is remarkably consistent. As Dennis Russell Davies says: “Those who know Keith will hear him in this music. It couldn’t have been written by anyone else.”
Keith Jarrett and conductor-pianist Dennis Russell Davies have been friends and musical comrades for forty years. In the mid-70s the St Paul Chamber Orchestra, under Davies’ direction presented Jarrett’s chamber music. In the 90s Jarrett recorded four Mozart piano concertos with Davies conducting the Stuttgarter Kammerorchester. Near the beginning of their association, Jarrett invited Davies to play this beautiful composition he had written for solo piano.
