Today’s Sunday track comes from German pianist and composer Nils Frahm. To mark this year’s 88th day and as an acknowledgement to these unprecedented circumstances we find ourselves in, Piano Day founder dropped a collection of eight solo piano pieces. Entitled “Empty”, the record is a comforting score for these turbulent times. Get your fill of the gently euphoric “No Step On Wing” and drive slow.

“Why does the world need a Piano Day? For many reasons. But mostly, because it doesn’t hurt to celebrate the piano and everything around it: performers, composers, piano builders, tuners, movers and most important, the listener.” German pianist and composer Nils Frahm has declared March 29th the world’s first “Piano Day” and celebrates this special occasion by giving away his new album called “Solo” for free download. The eight-track record was performed on the current tallest piano in the world, “The Giant” build by David Klavins. The height allows for very tall strings which create a very unique sounding piano. Grab it for free below, and give the wonderful track “Wall” a spin above. Happy Piano Day everyone!

Download the album “Solo” for free here. All proceeds from the album’s sales go to help piano builder David Klavins finish his latest model, Klavins M450.
