Piano Day 2021: Exclusive new sheet music

Monday, March 29th, 2021 marks the seventh annual Piano Day – an occasion founded by German pianist and composer Nils Frahm "to celebrate the piano and everything around it: performers, composers, piano builders, tuners, movers and most important, the listener."

Piano Day takes place on the 88th day of the year (matching, of course, the number of keys on a standard piano) and is comprised of concerts and other events all across the globe in celebration of the great instrument.

To celebrate the occasion, we are excited to have partnered with several of the biggest names in contemporary classical music to bring you previously unreleased sheet music. Be among the first to play previously unreleased piano works from Rachel Portman, Dustin O'Halloran, Yann Tiersen, Eydís Evensen, and much more.

Næturdögg – Eydís Evensen

Icelandic artist and composer Eydís Evensen is one of the most exciting young talents in contemporary classical music today. Taken from her forthcoming album BYLUR, the beautiful "Næturdögg" is an exclusive Piano Day release. Translating as "dew," Evensen composed the piece in Cape Town a few years ago. She reveals "I was going through a time in my life where I didn't know where I was heading, I didn't know if I wanted to continue my classical studies, so I was at a very confused state of being."

La Fontana – David Lanz

Grammy-nominated pianist and composer David Lanz's music straddles New Age and contemporary classical music.

Lullaby - Edward Gregson

Lullaby – Edward Gregson

Ivor Novello-nominated composer Edward Gregson has an impressive catalog of orchestral, chamber, instrumental and choral music to his name. His piece "Lullaby" is cast in ternary form, and whilst the simple melodic outline and gentle 6/8 rocking rhythm of the first section may suggest the world of other nursery rhymes, the middle section suggests a slightly different one – that of Romantic piano music of an earlier period, with its lush textures and melodic sequences. Despite being originally written several decades ago, the piece is available in sheet music form for the very first time exclusively for Piano Day.
