Barcelona is to join the initiative by German musician Nils Frahm on 29 March that aims to promote the consumption and practice of piano music
There are world days of practically everything and some of them can sometimes seem a little pointless. But that’s not the case of Piano Day, an international initiative by German musician Nils Frahm which is proving to be increasingly popular among music fans. This day will now be celebrated in Barcelona with a concert.
Piano Day always falls on the 88th day of the year, which happens to be the same number of keys on a piano. The initiative, which aims to foster love for the instrument, is now two years old and is coming to Barcelona in the form of a concert at Sala Nota 79, a small venue near to the metro station at Plaça Lesseps in Gràcia. On stage will be two local musicians from the fields of pop, indie and electronic music, the ethereal pianist Carles Viarnès, who has just published his second album Schematismus, and Berlinist, a chamber pop formation with four albums to their credit.
Piano Day falls on 29 March and the concert is scheduled to begin at 9pm. Ticlets are now on sale here.
