Project Description

Karl Jenkins: Piano

Karl Jenkins is the UK’s most popular contemporary composer, and one of Wales’ most versatile and critically-acclaimed musicians.

He is perhaps best-known today for the Adiemus project. The 1994 album Adiemus: Songs Of Sanctuary, described by Jenkins as “an extended choral-type work based on the European classical tradition, but where the vocal sound is more akin to ‘ethnic’ or ‘world’ music.”

Nickchapman studio were commissioned by Decca Records to come up with a new creative sleeve for this brand new album. The new album is entitled ‘Piano’ and sees Sir Karl at the keyboard for the first time, performing original piano versions of his best-loved works as well as two new compositions. The album will be released on 8th February, to coincide with Sir Karl’s UK tour which starts on 10th February in his native Wales – just ahead of his 75th birthday on 17th February.
