Peter Beets is one of the most recognized piano giants of our time. He is acclaimed and praised worldwide and his star keeps on rising, while his creativity keeps increasing. In variable musical activities, from the accompaniment of ‘first lady of jazz’ Rita Reys or guests of the Jazz Orchestra of the Concertgebouw to latin-jazz and his timeless arrangements of classical music, Beets’ personality and signature are always unmistakably audible. the many awards he has received through the years are the Edison (Dutch Grammy, 2010), the Prix Martial Solal (1998) and the Pall Mall Export Swing Award (1988). In spite of his relatively young age, Beets made a substantial number of impressive recordings.
The most recent are “Portrait of Peterson” which is an hommage to one of his biggest idols, Oscar Peterson and “Chopin meets the Blues Live” where he highlights Chopin as a real jazz composer.
