In the Light is a double album of contemporary classical music by Keith Jarrett which was recorded and released on the ECM label in 1973.[1]


The Allmusic review by Richard S. Ginell awarded the album 3 stars noting "In this compendium of eight works for all kinds of ensembles, the then-28-year old Jarrett adamantly refuses to be classified, flitting back and forth through the centuries from the baroque to contemporary dissonance, from exuberant counterpoint for brass quintet to homophonic writing for a string section".[2]
