A celebration of Piano Day throughout March on Worldwide FM
Started by Nils Frahm and a group of likeminded people, Piano Day is a worldwide event that celebrates the piano in all its glory. Taking place on the 88th day of the year (to match the number of keys on a piano), it is marked by a series of events that celebrates the performers, composers, builders, tuners, movers and listeners.
This year we’ve teamed up with FLOAT, who host one the London events on 29th March – an evening of piano, grime, jazz and dance, joined by Norwegian composer Bugge Wesseltoft, MC Trim & Matthew Bourne and Berlin-based percussionist Andrea Belfi with Dead Light.
Sofia Ilyas of FLOAT presents two hours of piano music spanning hip-hop, soundtrack, traditional and everything in between.
Visionary pianist and composer Matthew Bourne ventures south from his rural Yorkshire home to present two hours live from London.
Exclusive interviews and performances with Bugge Wesseltoft, Andrea Belfi and Dead Light, alongside some highlights from the London event, hosted by FLOAT at Union Chapel.
