Watching Brad Mehldau play piano is like watching a performance artist on a highwire–with every part of his body, from head to toe, working together to produce a genuinely amazing result. On Live in Marciac, we see and hear Mehldau in a solo performance in Marciac, France on this 2-CD/DVD set. The widely-acclaimed pianist interprets a mix of self-penned compositions and works by range of a songwriters from Cole Porter and Rodgers and Hammerstein to Kurt Cobain and Radiohead. Mehldau’s mesmerizing total immersion into his artistry produces a stunningly beautiful combination of sound and wizardry.
