Nils Frahm - The Bells

Rating: 8

Despite the current proliferation of modern classical artists, this latest offering from German composer Nils Frahm is something of a revelation. Perhaps it’s the improvisatory nature of these solo piano pieces which gives them a fluidity all too often absent from Frahm’s contemporaries, or perhaps it’s just down to the immaculate production work from Peter Broderick, but ‘The Bells’ is a consistently fascinating listen. Possessing a grandeur that never descends into pomposity and a restraint that could never be mistaken for bland aural wallpaper, this is undoubtedly one of the most beautiful releases you’re likely to hear over the coming months.
