Established by German pianist Nils Frahm in 2016, Piano Day is held yearly on the 29th of March, the 88th day of the year (in reference to the number of standard piano keys). Renowned for his humility, the Berlin-based composer sums up the project simply: "It can't hurt to celebrate the piano once a year and all those who bring it to life: composers, performers, builders, tuners, movers, and most importantly: the listeners!" This celebration, which has spread worldwide, inspires many events across the globe. The very first compilation dedicated to Piano Day has been released for all piano enthusiasts, to mark the 7th anniversary of this event. What better label than Nils Frahm’s Leiter to get the show on the road.
The 32 pieces on this record all revolve around this famous kaleidoscope of neoclassical compositions. This movement, led by Nils Frahm and Iceland’s Ólafur Arnalds, seems to have attracted a large number of young musicians over the past decade. Almost all of these pianists have adopted an easy-to-recognise style: simple austere melodies; arpeggiated basslines; increased use of sustain pedals; subtle electronic layers and microphones positioned closer to the strings to capture the instrument’s granularity. Although many may be averse to such a standardisation, it can’t be denied that these pieces are truly hypnotic and capable of suspending reality. This record isn’t just about admiring the elegance of Ravel, or the experiments of Cage and Legeti. First and foremost, Piano Day is about unification; it’s an invitation for everyone to celebrate this beautiful instrument in all its simplicity. © Pierre Lamy/Qobuz

In your panoramas...
Nils Frahm, an Atypical Piano Master

Hailed by critics of classical music as well as amateurs of the electronic genre, Nils Frahm’s talent has brought harmony between the two worlds for the last ten years. Whether he plays on a church organ or a synthesiser fitted with effect pedals, the German pianist is always looking forward, and that’s what makes him so appealing.

Neoclassicism: The New World Between Classical Music and Electro

Ólafur Arnalds, Nils Frahm, Max Richter, Poppy Ackroyd, Peter Broderick, Joana Gama... In recent years, these popular names have all been grouped under the vast and imprecise label "neoclassical". In truth, this "scene" looks more like a motley crew of curious artists who mix classical instruments with electronic production. Drawing influence from American minimalism, these musicians tantalise the senses and expand horizons on both sides of the musical spectrum.

Erased Tapes, a Not-so-classic Label

Since its birth in 2007, Erased Tapes has made a name for itself as one of the most innovative labels of the last 15 years and enjoyed great commercial success. Although some fail to see past its neoclassical shopfront (Nils Frahm, Ólafur Arnalds), the London-based label explores the outer limits of ambient, electronica and experimental with a catalogue that's smoothly curated by the German Robert Raths. Qobuz takes a closer look.
