Experience an intimate and introspective journey with Niels Lan Doky on solo piano for the very first time in Denmark! He performed solo at Carnegie Recital Hall in New York decades ago and had a solo tour in Japan. Now, 25 years later, he is ready to embark on a new journey with his new concert series 'The Radius Of Now'.


Please note, the concert ticket includes entrance to the museum.

Niels Lan Doky will be showcasing his original compositions and improvisational ‘Explorations’; spontaneous, abstract-poetic creations that delve deep into the present moment, rendering each performance a singular and extraordinary experience that cannot be replicated. This solo performance is a rare opportunity to witness one of Danish jazz’s luminaries!

Hailed as “the best pianist of his generation” (by Swing Journal, Japan), “fresh and provocative” (by the New York Times), and “one of the most important European pianists of the last 50 years” (by El Diario, Spain), Danish-born Niels Lan Doky has graced the most prestigious stages globally (Royal Albert Hall, Carnegie Recital Hall, Lincoln Center, Blue Note, etc.), collaborating with the greatest jazz luminaries (Pat Metheny, Michael Brecker, David Sanborn, Ray Brown, and many more), and classical orchestras such as the Montreal Symphony Orchestra and the Copenhagen Philharmonic. Furthermore, Doky was knighted by HM Queen Margrethe II of Denmark in 2010. As the esteemed Bösendorfer Artist, Doky’s unparalleled tapestries of notes transport the instrument’s unmatched beauty to concert stages worldwide, inviting audiences to experience the sparkling storytelling within his music. Despite its deep virtuosity and complexity, his music is simultaneously profoundly emotional and broadly appealing.

This concert is the third presentation of amazing jazz concerts this Autumn. Join us again on 6 December when Amy Winehouse is interpreted by the great Manu Katché on drums and Felix Pastorius on bass, among others. See all jazz concerts.
