I don't know why these concerts haven't been released before, but I'm glad they are out now. Having first got to know Jarrett via the Cologne and La Scala concerts and been rather disappointed with the Sun Bear series, these two definitely lived up to expectations.

Strangely, this gem in Keith Jarrett's long string of output has never been available on CD in its entirety. This has now been remedied, and it has been worth the wait. This is probably one of Jarrett's best solo piano recordings, so if you like the Köln concerts, you simply need this. No more words required.

This is the first opportunity to hear the entirety of the München concert although, as alluded to above, Part IV appears in Jarrett's :rarum compilation sandwiched almost improbably between the saxophone and organ of one version of "Invocations" and "Late Night Willie" from the Jarrett, Garbarek, Danielsson and Christensen quartet. That Jarrett included both Part IV and "Heartland" from Bregenz in his personal resume was primarily testament to his conscious attempt to "direct the listener's attention to recordings that have been, in [his] opinion less than...is their due" but, now, an added incentive to listen to "Concerts" in full.

With the above in mind, and buoyed by the rich critical praise, I was rather underwhelmed on the first couple of listens. Thereafter, what seemed to be caution and (over) control revealed itself as precision, a masterful oversight of the conception and an utter confidence in the audacity of the enterprise. While these things are personal, nothing moves me in the way the opening of "Koln" or the closing of "La Scala" but there are still great epiphanic moments as Jarrett releases (or reaches) almost transcendental beauty. "Bregenz" is the standout of the three discs and to describe the influences as the usual bag of Bach and rag and everything inbetween is trite but reminds one of the sheer scope of Jarrett's oeuvre. The liner notes are excellent, detailed, thoughtful but accessible and contribute to a handsome release of great music at an attractive price.

this was a good set of Jarrett recordings and quite enjoyable to listen. But not outstanding. While very reasonably priced I would recommend other recordings to anyone now to Jarrett

This is classic "solo piano" Jarret
If you enjoyed the Koln Concert and are not sure to go next ...I would recommend you try this release

If you like KJ then this is for you. Not brilliant but very nice and from his very good period.

I've had the Bregenz concert for years and could never figure out why the 2 Munchen albums/CDs were not available. How pleased I was then on discovering that the complete set was now re-released as it were. Bregenz as always been a favourite - I always imagined Heartland playing at my funeral with those present to ensure that I finally was gone being somewhat dismayed on learning that two thirds through I was banging on me coffin trying to get out!

Less crackersly I thoroughly enjoyed discovering the 2 Munchen CDs. Currently Part 1 is definitely my favourite - I've always found the more discordant bits less accessible although mar love says it's pretty much all discordant and she can actually play our piano and her trumpet and her Dad's drums! OK so I'll bloody listen on me own then - and I'll have me favourite joss sticks on too!
