Solo Piano

Roberta Piket Solo Jazz Piano

Solo (2012)

Emanation: Solo, Volume 2 (2015)

On Emanation, Roberta Piket makes it clear that she knows who she is and what she has to offer…She seeks an unusual and especially rewarding path… casting light into the music from fresh perspectives. Much more can be said about the intricacy of Piket’s complex funk allusions on Herbie Hancock’s “Actual Proof,” or her elastic and inventive treatment of the written left-hand part in her “Fantasy On A Theme By Chopin (Prelude Opus 28, No. 2),” over which she crafts gently dissonant passages in the fashion of Erik Satie’s Gymnopédies. For now, it’s enough to remark on how rare it is to find a pianist whose self-imposed limitations on dynamics and exhibitionism only empower her eloquence.
DownBeat, August 2015
“Her touch is elegant, expressive and musical. Most important, there is an extraordinary emotional intensity that one rarely finds in today’s overloaded recording industry… truly an amazing creative and musical accomplishment… There are so many solo piano CDs coming out. Happily, this is one of the very best.”
