Jeffrey Chappell: Solo Piano

Sponsored by Zabar’s

In his long awaited return to Key West, international concert pianist and composer Jeffrey Chappell weaves together jazz and classical compositions and invites you to reconsider the very ways that music communicates. The accolades he’s inspired say it all:

“Some rise above their colleagues in how well and originally they communicate. One of the latter is Jeffrey Chappell. He ended his program with a reading of Ravel’s Gaspard de la Nuit which was one of the finest this writer has heard.” – NEW YORK TIMES

“On a few hours notice, he replaced an ailing Claudio Arrau and performed, without benefit of rehearsal, the mighty Brahms Second Concerto. Chappell came through with flying colors and won a standing ovation.”  — BALTIMORE NEWS-AMERICAN

“Chappell is remarkable in intelligence and sensitivity. His technique is mastered to the point that one forgets it. The heart rules the fingers.”  — LE SOIR, BRUSSELS

“In ‘American Sonata’, composed by Mr. Chappell, he incorporated jazz, classical, and contemporary elements into a single work reminiscent of Erroll Garner and George Gershwin. One might call his style ‘jazzical’.”  — WASHINGTON TIMES

“He continually defies the unwritten law that pianists can’t excel at both classical music and jazz.”  — BALTIMORE MAGAZINE

“An extremely talented pianist with power to spare.”  — ST. LOUIS GLOBE-DEMOCRAT

“Performances of Ravel’s Jeux d´Eau and Toccata were fashioned with crispness, lightness and mesmerizing tonal balance, and if the powerful repeated-note figures at the opening of the ‘Toccata’ were impressive, the final pages were simply breathtaking.”  — WASHINGTON POST

“Jeffrey Chappell in the prominent piano part was spectacular.” (Scriabin’s ‘Prometheus: Poem of Fire’ with the Baltimore Symphony and Sergiu Comissiona at Carnegie Hall)  — NEW YORK DAILY NEWS
