Pianists’ Live Improv

I’ve featured Ólafur Arnalds & Nils Frahm previously on separate posts titled: Near Light and Said & Done.  Now the two solo artists come together to create a new song live in front of an intimate audience at Roter Salon, Volksbühne Berlin.  The musicians test/practise with the new equipment up to the ~ 2:20 mark on the video and the improvision starts from there.

Genius. And Magic.


  1. They’re very good, even if they were nervous.


  2. Mixed feelings with this one, David. At times I enjoyed, at others concerned for their direction. That being said however; what I’d give to be able to do as they do. Enormous talent, and strength of character to place themselves on the line, so to speak…


  3. i very much love creative collaborations and i thought this was a wonderful example of why i do.


  4. Reblogged this on Looking for the Light.


  5. Amazing! So intimate, relaxing and pulls you into the music. I hope to see more. Have a great day.


  6. Fantastic!!


  7. Interesting to watch and hear it unfold.


  8. I’ve been an Olafur Arnalds fan for a long time…and really liked seeing these two together. Musical magic. Thanks David.
