The best selling piano album ever--- is from huge errors

The best selling piano album ever--- is from huge errors

文章Rock » 週六 1月 23, 2016 10:13 am

The Köln Concert of Keith Jarrett is the best selling album of piano in history. However, it wouldn't be there without these problems:

1. a 17-year-old concert organizer
2. a wrong piano which was in a poor condition
3. a very tired pianist with serious backache
4. a sleepy time of performance at 23:30

Amazingly, by overcoming these disadvantages, Jarrett made the greatest performance in his career. By the way, the music was totally improvised.

In order to be Rock's best companion at the YoYo forum, here comes my response!

The claim that this is the best selling piano album in history is probably not borne out by the facts. I don't quite subscribe to the idea that Keith Jarrett could surpass Richard Clayderman, the widely-favored pianist, in sales figures. So I googled and found that Richard's first single, Ballade pour Adeline, sells 22 million copies abroad!

Here it probably refers to the written transcript of the Koln concert improvised by Keith Jarrett.

Wikipedia: Subsequent to the release of The Köln Concert, Jarrett was asked by pianists, musicologists and others, to publish the music. For years he resisted such requests since, as he said, the music played was improvised "on a certain night and should go as quickly as it comes."[9] In 1990, Jarrett finally agreed on publishing an authorized transcription but with the recommendation that every pianist intending to play the piece should use the recording itself as the final word. A new interpretation of The Köln Concert was published in 2006 by Polish pianist Tomasz Trzcinski on his album Blue Mountains.

Wow! You guys are good. Thank you so much for the information. It seems that my teachers Wiki and Ted sometimes make mistakes. How about BBC?
