Piano Improvisation Single-Take With No Overdubs On Vinyl LP!

TAS Super LP List! Special Merit: Informal

For his 2015 album Solo, German musician Nils Frahm recorded eight improvised piano motifs in one sitting on the 12-foot-tall upright piano built in the late 1980s, the M370. The M370 is situated in Tübingen, Germany, is 1.8 tons in weight, is 3.7 meters high, and its longest strings are about 10 feet in length. The M370 was designed by piano builder David Klavins who also created Nils's upright stage piano, the Una Corda.

During its best moments Solo brings to mind some of the lower-stakes work of Harold Budd, where melody and mood become two sides of the same coin.
With 'Solo,' Nils Frahm pushes pause on the modern psyche and brings the artistry of 'classical' music to the forefront without resorting to gimmicks. This immaculate collection is the perfect recording to play for an intimate gathering with family or friends or alone on a solemn, rainy night.
