now playing Gilles Peterson: Jon Hendricks Tribute

A celebration of Piano Day throughout March on Worldwide FM

Piano Day

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.
