To me, one of the most fascinating aspects in times of music streaming and social media is how easy it is to discover and get in touch with artists from all over the world. Piano Artist of the World is a playlist that features piano artists from various countries around the world. Each edition is accompanied by a blog post where the artists tell the story behind their piece included in the playlist.
The objective of this playlist is to unite piano artists from around the world while at the same time portraying the uniqueness in their music that comes from their individual background. Furthermore, since this is something I really miss in the contemporary classical scene, it gives piano artists a platform to tell about their music.
With this playlist I hope to get people to listen to the music consciously, and for them to learn more about what’s behind the music – a story, a mood, or a feeling. Ultimately, I would like to encourage listeners to get in contact with the artists and establish a true connection.
How it differs from other playlists
Focus on the essential
Different from most other playlists, Piano Artists of the World only contains a few pieces, usually around 4-5.
Talk about the music
Each update is accompanied by a blog entry on the Piano Artists of the World blog, which features a story to each piece, written by the artist him or herself.
Preserve Artistic freedom
Artists are carefully selected by me, but the artists can decide for themselves which of their pieces they would like to include in the playlist.
