Keith Tippett

For over thirty years Keith Tippett has been at the forefront of contemporary European jazz and new music ” as a pianist, composer, bandleader, band member and musical educator. Tippett’s work ranges from his unique free improvisation as a solo pianist and with duos and small groups such as the quartet Mujician, to compositions for, and performances with, contemporary classical groups (including the Composers’ Ensemble, Kokoro and the Kreutzer String Quartet) and large-scale works for Jazz Orchestra.

As an educator, Keith Tippett has a natural aptitude for coaxing new freedoms from musicians of all ages and abilities. He has worked with junior schoolchildren in artist-in-education projects and in extended workshops with aspiring jazz musicians in Britain and other countries, including Germany, Italy, Soviet Georgia and South Africa. He has been co-director of the Dartington International Summer School jazz course for the last decade, holds Honorary Fellowships at both Dartington College of Arts and the Welsh College of Music and Drama where he is currently a visiting tutor in piano and improvisation and director of the College’s Jazz Ensemble.
