Pablo Held Solo (DE)

German Jazz Nights

Pablo Held - piano

The Jazz Station and the Goethe-Institut invite you to their 10th edition of German Jazz Nights! For three evenings, the Jazz Station will be inhabited by German jazz, through various projects and very specific musical personalities. For this very special edition, we will offer you a panel of the various groups that we have had the pleasure of hosting over the past ten years...

In a few years, Pablo Held has acquired a great reputation both in Germany and abroad thanks to his own groups (Pablo Held Trio, GLOW), and to his collaboration with the legendary John Scofield. However, few people have had the opportunity to hear him as part of his solo project. Occasionally, the musician enjoys being alone in front of his piano, an instrument that seems tonally more neutral than any other, and which, however, can represent all the others. It is during a live performance that the power of this formula is truly revealed. At first you will spot a stool and a long black box. Silence. Then, from the first note, the first oscillation of the air, an irresistible magic will emanate from the silence. In the perilous exercise of style represented by the solo piano, Pablo Held excels and appears as a narrator. He paints his dream images, performs his own compositions, presents his own version of his favorite pieces from different musical styles and combines the expressiveness of jazz with the culture of European classical music. Everything is intense because everything he hears is assimilated and transformed. His art is enriched with beauty and truth. His secret: Pablo Held plays unconsciously while knowing exactly what he is doing.
