Notes and Editorial Reviews

"...while purists might claim that the jazz pianist Keith Jarrett’s disc of Handel’s keyboard suites is an example of the wrong performer on the wrong instrument, his straightforward conception and contrapuntal clarity underscore the solid foundation on which Handel’s most flamboyant fantasies were built." - Steve Smith, NEW YORK TIMES "...while purists might claim that the jazz pianist Keith Jarrett’s disc of Handel’s keyboard suites is an example of the wrong performer on the wrong instrument, his straightforward conception and contrapuntal clarity underscore the solid foundation on which Handel’s most flamboyant fantasies were built." - Steve Smith, NEW YORK TIMES Read less

 Oh my! August 14, 2012 By Thomas  Slover See All My Reviews "Mr. Jarrett's motto might be, "I could have been a pianist, but I wound up here." Persons who know nothing about Classical music will probably think this disc is good. A little like Wynton Marsalis and, briefly, Benny Goodman, pop/jazz "musicians" should stay away from the classics. Ditto for Keith Jarrett. It takes years of difficult study to learn how to interpret the Masters. One doesn't get this by noodling around with lesser music. You may laugh. You may cry. Just don't buy this one." Report Abuse
