Magical synths and minimalist pianos
The young German pianist and composer Nils Frahm began playing the piano at a young age guided by his teacher Nahum Brodsky, himself a pupil of the great Russian composer Pyotr Ilyich Tchaikovsky. Frahm's approach to the instrument, however, is anything but conventional, combining canonical composition with bundles of improvisation; his playing style is intimate but intense, winning fans in their thousands around the world. The German leans towards a delicate and minimalist music style with roots in classical and electronica, placing him next to contemporaries like Olafur Arnalds, Nico Muhly, Peter Broderick and Library Tapes. The pace at which he has released his material is breathtaking: since 2009 he has released 7 albums, highlighted by "Felt" and "Juno", both in 2012: the first distinguished by an unprecedented concept (based on the filters Frahm applies to the piano in order to not disturb his neighbours), with the second demonstrating his antics with synthesizers, (which have been reconceptualised by Luke Abbott and Clark). His fans have been clamouring for an album that reflected the experiments in his live performances, always original due to the high level of improvisation. Frahm responded by releasing album "Spaces" recorded live in late 2013, which was praised by the specialised music critiques. Mary Anne Hobbs, for example, said it was her favourite album of the year. Constructed with samples, synths and percussive passages, "Spaces" offers the listener a complex but fully nourishing journey into sound.
