Chris Jarrett Live in Gramercy NYC at Casa Clara (Site)

Friday May 10, 7:00 pm - 8:30 pm


Chris Jarrett comes from a family of musicians born in Pennsylvania. Stationed in Germany for decades now, he has toured Western and Eastern Europe, North Africa, Australia, Indonesia as well as North America with his piano compositions and improvisations, with organ music as well as in various ensembles. Mr. Jarrett is an incredibly diverse musician who has worked with countless fine musicians in musical realms between jazz, improvisation, world music and classical structures.

Chris Jarrett’s music is expressive, vital and impulsive, full of breaks and surprises and rarely fits into the usual categories of the music industry. For Chris Jarrett, Frank Zappa is an equally valuable model as are the masters of the Baroque or the Renaissance. No wonder his repertoire ranges from atonal miniatures, to sonatas, film scores, ballet and opera.

This will be his first time in Gramercy, NYC.


“When pressing the keys with such energy, such pianistic fury, but also with such brilliance and subtlety of attack, while virtually incorporating the bulky instrument … [he awakens] associations to the mythical Centaur – half human, half piano … full of fantasy, original, bursting with energy and technically perfect.”
– Frankfurter Allgemeine Zeitung
