NILS FRAHM

Saturday August 18th
Fort Stage

In just a few years, Nils Frahm has become one of the most prominent figures of contemporary classical with his minimalist compositions including electronic elements. When he was boy, Nils Frahm was taught the piano by a Russian woman. Afterwards, the German multi instrumentalist delved into contemporary music composers (Keith Jarret, Arvo Pärt, the ECM label). « All Melody »,his seventh album was recorded at Funkhaus, his studio in Berlin. On this record, the composer is at th top of his game and brillantly mixes classic instruments ( piano, organs, strings) and synthesizers. A perfect mix between contemplative ambience and airy rhythms.
