Piano Day promotes the diversity, development and musical dimensions of the piano. Piano concerts are held in many cities.
The day was established in 2015 by Nils Frahm. Since then, Piano Day is always celebrated on the 88th day (based on the number of piano keys) of the year on March 29.
A percussive, seemingly endlessly repeating high-register piano motif unfolds over a carpet of a repeating, harmonically sparse major key piano arpeggio. Processed with backward effects, the motif later takes on an almost flute-like impression.
