INTRODUCING: THE WORLDS BIGGEST PIANO

Published Apr 29 by Tyson Fish.
Back in 1987 David Klavins introduced the Modell 370, the worlds largest piano which sits at 12 feet high and requires a second story to seat the player. There have been numerous recordings using the piano, the most recent of which is German musician Nils Frahm's new album "-solo-". Nils spent four days at the location of the 800kg upright piano, improvising 9 hours of material that would eventually make up the 43 minute album.

Coinciding with the release of "-solo-" Nils has dubbed March 29 'Piano Day', in which he has set up a website (pianoday.org) to help raise money for Klavins dream piano: a new 15 foot piano called the Modell 450. If all goes according to plan then Klavins will release the new piano on Piano Day 2017. Check out the video below.
