Pablo Held -][- GLOW (MP3) – [Pirouet Records, 2011]
Pablo Held has created music that is enormously rich. Contrast, color, and interaction: these are the essential catchwords that best capture the sense and sensibility of his new project. A completely new facet of Pablo Held’s music emerges here: this is music from someone who deals masterfully with this remarkable formation. Music that lives – one can sense that the musician’s teamwork was truly inspired. Pablo Held has created something big, both personally and musically.
Born on December 27th, 1986, pianist Pablo Held has won the first prize at Nordrhein-Westfalen’s “Jugend Jazzt” three times – in 1999, 2003, and 2005, the first time as a twelve-year-old! He has played with, among others, the WDR Big Band, Manfred Schoof, Paul Heller, and Niels Klein. Held studied in Cologne with the outstanding German pianist Hubert Nuss. His debut album “Forest of Oblivion” was highly praised by the press.
At the age of 23, he brings out his second CD, “Music” – and that previous remarkable profile is brought into even sharper perspective. And in March 2010 Pablo assembled no less than nine musicians to record in the broadcast hall of the German Radio in Cologne. Titled “Glow“, Held’s third recording for Pirouet Records will be released in February 2011.
Original Release Date: February 17, 2011
