Hamburg-born Berlin-based Nils Frahm is an accomplished composer, producer and celebrated performer, whose unconventional approach to the piano has won him many fans around the world.
His piano works gained huge popularity through his sell-out, bespoke art music books SHEETS Eins, Zwei and Drei. Now published by Manners McDade as digital sheet music, pianists can once again enjoy these evocative and atmospheric pieces, many of which are no longer available in hardback. The 30 titles are available worldwide to purchase as individual pieces to print at home or play straight from the screen.
Visit fabermusic.com/SHEETS to explore and download all pieces now.
Also coming soon, SHEETS Eins, Zwei and Drei piano works will be available in eBook format from
18th December 2023.
First published in 2013, SHEETS Eins was a sell-out success, and included pieces such as ‘Ambre’ and ‘Kind’ alongside illustrated instructions on how to modify your piano to achieve Nils’ signature ‘Felt’ sound.
The music from SHEETS Zwei reflects Nils’ no-rules approach to music making. Seeking to go beyond the strict limitations that sheet music may often evoke, the pieces are more of a blueprint with which players are encouraged to reinterpret, modify and make their own: the music from Zwei is an open invitation from Nils for piano enthusiasts to explore their own creativity and simply spend time to enjoy playing.
Released in 2021 and the only SHEETS available still in physical hardback format, SHEETS Drei is the third in the series, including the sheet music to ten of Nils’ piano pieces.
About Nils Frahm
Nils Frahm had an early introduction to music, learning the piano throughout his childhood. It was through this that Nils began to immerse himself in the styles of classical pianists from previous generations as well as the music of contemporary composers, before forging his own musical path through composition. His approach to an age-old instrument, played contemplatively and intimately, and on a mesmerising scale through his vast stage shows, has won him fans around the world. Nils has gained global notoriety for his highly developed sense of control and restraint in his work, as well as a breath-taking level of emotion and personality.
In 2015 Nils launched Piano Day, an official global body created with his closest friends to celebrate the piano via various innovative, piano-related projects and concerts around the world. To this day, Piano Day is celebrated on the 88th day of the year (signifying the number of keys on the piano), by pianists and piano lovers the world over.
Touring extensively, upcoming appearances in 2024 include the Philharmonie de Paris, National Concert Hall in Dubin and sold-out shows at London’s Barbican in July.
