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 has made a substantial number of impressive recordings.
The most recent are "Chopin meets the Blues", with exciting jazz-arrangements of the Polish grandmaster’s music, and "Portrait of Peterson", which is an homage to one of his biggest idols, Oscar Peterson. On both CDs he works together with renowned jazz artists such as Reuben Rogers (bass) and Greg Hutchinson (drums).
