‘9/10. ‘Be sure to catch Nils Frahm in person, at least once in your lifetime!’

POP MATTERS

Following his sold-out Australian debut at Vivid LIVE 2014, German piano-prodigy and composer Nils Frahm returns to Australia for select shows, by popular demand.

Inviting audiences to the edge of the stage for a unique musical journey that roams between the upright piano, Steinway grand, and electronic keyboard, Nils will perform highlights from last year’s career-defining live album, Spaces, described as ‘A work of gentle genius’ (The Quietus). This intimate performance will showcase the virtuoso’s unconventional approach to an age-old instrument, led by a restless search for immediacy and intimacy in his work that has won him universal acclaim.

Lauded for his all-live improvisational spirit and open-hearted discourse with fans, the 31-year-old composer has flourished from his Tchaikovsky-schooled beginnings to embracing the minimalist tradition of classical greats (Steve Reich, Philip Glass), the boundless stagecraft of jazz legends (Miles Davis, Thelonius Monk), and electronic-minded admirers such as Thom Yorke and Four Tet.

Deeply inquisitive and forever-searching for the ‘magic and spirit’ in every space, Frahm’s devotion to the stage culminated in his 7th and most recent LP Spaces, a live album captured from two years of performances in the world’s iconic concert halls and underground clubs alike.
