Piano Day 2022: Exclusive new sheet music

Tuesday, March 29th, 2022 marks the eighth 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.

In celebration of Piano Day, we have once again partnered with several of the biggest names in contemporary classical to bring you previously unreleased sheet music for no less than 18 solo piano titles. Be among the first to play compositions from Alexis Ffrench, Rachel Portman, Max Richter, Stephan Moccio, and much more.
