Nils Frahm

Nils & Rachel by TheModel

Nils Frahm, born in 1982, had an early introduction to music. During his childhood he was taught to play piano by Nahum Brodski – a student of the last scholar of Tschaikowski. It was through this that Nils began to immerse himself in the styles of the classical pianists before him as well as contemporary composers. Today Nils Frahm works as an accomplished composer and producer in Berlin. In early 2008 he founded Durton Studio, where he has worked with Peter Broderick and Dustin O’ Halloran amongst other fellow musicians.

Louisville-based pianist Rachel Grimes is best known for her work with the Rachels, one of indie’s best chamber music ensembles. Grimes released her solo piano album Book of Leaves in 2009. She is currently finishing an album with Louisville-based King’s Daughters & Sons and developing a large-scale chamber work designed for New York experimental theater ensemble SITI Company. In 2010 she will share the stage in the US with instrumental composers On Fillmore and in Europe with pianist and composer Nils Frahm.
