that's really a great show. i was lucky to attend it here in mainz and was once again astound by the depth and formal comlexity of schlippenbach's piano-playing - and his unique combination of these with great taste and delicate musical sense. listen to that (and his cds "twelve-tone tales", intakt) and you know what i mean!

Hm, I'm not so familiar with Schlippenbach yet - mainly I know some live shows of his... I also saw him live with Die Enttäuschung doing "Monk's Casino" - they were great, but Schlippenbach was by far the most uninspired of the bunch... of course it's always hard (actually rather: impossible) for a pianist to take Monk's role when playing Monk tunes... but I couldn't say he did well, really... Dörner, Mahall and the rhythm section were terrific, though!
