“Nils Frahm is poised to become something of a sensation” The Economist’s Intelligent Life
“If there’s any justice The Bells, along with his recently released Wintermusik set, will expose Frahm to a wider audience, a demographic with a seemingly insatiable appetite for more prime neo-classicism” BBC Music
Nils Frahm was born in 1982 and had an early introduction to music. During his childhood he was taught to play piano by Nahum Brodski – a student of the last scholar of Tschaikowski. It was through this that Nils Frahm began to immerse himself in the styles of the classical pianists before him as well as contemporary composers. Today, Nils Frahm works as a composer and producer in Berlin. In early 2008 Nils Frahm founded Durton Studio, where he has worked with likeminded musicians.
The three instrumentals, which make up his debut studio album release ‘Wintermusik’ are piano led pieces, coloured with occasional celeste and reed organ parts. This amazing collection of tracks by Nil Frahm has equal measures of sorrowful refrains and uplifting passages, combined with a real intimacy that makes for an album you’ll want to return to again and again. The songs were originally intended as a Christmas present for friends and family, and first released on sonic pieces, hence its winter release via London-based cinematic music label Erased Tapes.
As the curator of the Swedish boutique label Kning Disk’s Piano Series, Peter Broderick invited Nils Frahm to record a new album of piano improvisations – the result is ‘The Bells’, which will now also be released on Erased Tapes in the UK, Ireland and North America. The record includes pieces of improvised piano music, which were recorded in the wonderful Grunewald church in Berlin.
