You have undoubtedly heard that the piano is hot again, but even with an ever-growing number of competitors, there is still no one as hot as Nils Frahm. The Berlin pianist, composer and – not least – dogged synthesizer enthusiast is still – fifteen years after his first album – being praised by both piano experts and incurable hipsters. He has already released almost twenty albums and EPs was mentioned in one breath with Steve Reich, Keith Jarrett and electronics pioneer Thomas Fehlman, and has worked with everyone from Ólafur Arnalds to DJ Shadow to Woodkid, with whom he wrote the music for the short film ELLIS by the French street artist JR with Robert De Niro. But Frahm has made the biggest impression by far in the past two decades with his concerts. Accompanied by ‘no more’ than a battery of pianos, Moog synthesizers, Fender Rhodes and other vintage toys, this ridiculously talented musician leave his audience with open mouths every time. A concert by Nils Frahm is in fact not even a concert anymore, but a musical high mass with cooler organs, heavenly sounds and – we’ll take care of that! – better wine.
