Happy Piano Day! Nils Frahm Releases “Solo” To Fund A Dream

Just in from Nils:


At the end of 2014 I had an immediate urge to release a solo piano album which I recorded some time ago, and I was looking for a specific occasion to do so. I wanted it to be a nice surprise for everyone, so I thought of a meaningful release date to begin with.


Seconds later it came to my mind: I was about to create my own holiday in order to come up with a reason for this release. Moreover, if I could be proud of something, then of being responsible for an annual celebration of the piano. And here comes the best bit, Piano Day will happen on the 88th day of the year, which most of the time is the 29th of March. Piano Day is intended to be the most joyful of all holidays…


My new record – solo – was recorded on the prototype of the instrument under discussion. Although being a slightly smaller version with 3.7 meters in height, the Klavins M370  is already tremendous and gigantic sounding…


Read the whole story, download the recording for free or purchase a copy, and GIVE generously to make a dream come true, and cement this newly minted holiday!

Nils Frahm is soon to embark on a 9fingers Tour named after his recent thumb injury, through North America. Despite his fears, Nils decided to embrace his demons and record a ‘Song for 9 fingers’ as personal motivation and a message of optimism to his American fans:

‘This is my new Django Reinhardt way of doing it. Or, in case you break your left thumb, you can still perform this.’
