Karl Jenkins: Piano – Karl Jenkins

Released ahead of his 75th birthday, Piano finds Karl Jenkins in the dual role of composer and pianist. He returns to many of his best-loved pieces, such as The Armed Man, “Adiemus” and Requiem, and treats us to an intimate, stripped-back programme of sure-fire favourites. One of the most-performed living composers, he has a gently benign presence, not to mention an easy way with melody and heart-salving harmonies that never misses the mark. He’s a fluent player and this touchingly sincere album will appeal to his myriad fans: It’s not often that we get this close to the great man.
