From NYC, Kenny Werner, solo piano Galway Jazz

"What sets Werner apart is his ability to consistently reach an ecstatic space when he plays, and communicate a rare depth of insight."- Gramophone

"A clear virtuoso, and when he solos there's with everywhere, with clichés dragged out of the closet to poke fun at or rhythmic bumps added for humor."– New York Times

The Aula Maxima welcome US grammy nominated pianist Kenny Werner, whose effortless mastery will be appreciated in full on the venue's concert Steinway. Solo performance is perhaps the highest expression of the jazz musician's craft, when player, instrument and audience are as one. In Werner's hands, it's a powerful and direct emotional experience with no impediment to the musical possilbities, from lyrical intimacy to grand orchestral sweep.
