– I have come to realise that the pieces
I have chosen to play are an integral part of me. In a strange way, I
feel like I am playing my memoirs.
May it be ABBA, CHESS, MAMMA
MIA, a film score or music for the symphony orchestra. Benny Andersson’s
melodies stand out as unique and his music has become an essential part
of music history. Here we meet Benny at his beloved piano, listening to
the music in its pure original form, the way it sounded when the
melodies saw the light of day.
We are proud to present Benny Andersson’s new album ”Piano”, to be released on the 29th of September on Deutsche Grammphon.
‘Piano’ takes listeners on a 21-track journey through his acclaimed and celebrated career as songs from ABBA, his musicals and other solo-compositions are re-interpreted as you have never heard them before, performed unaccompanied by just Benny himself, on his trusted grand piano. The album was recorded with Linn Fijal, engineer and studio manager at his own RMV Studios, on the island of Skeppsholmen, in the heart of his hometown Stockholm.
With this album – Piano, Benny is telling his story in his own way.
A first track ‘Thank You For The Music’ is available now.
To accompany the release of the album, which will be available on CD, vinyl and digital download formats, a book of sheet music will also be released.
