Every February it’s a special Waves show for me. In a week I’ll have my 11th anniversary with the show and on FriskyRadio in general! Sometimes I have some special guests, sometimes I play some special. So after having pianist and music producer Xeuphoria last year, this time I picked another pianist. Classical Glass is composing and playing his music with a scope from classical piano over ambient piano to orchestral music. I asked him about some of is most beloved own tunes and we compiled them.
Around this series of pieces I arranged some of the greatest modern piano music I know – from Dave Greening, Frances Shelley, Marco Lucchi or Olafur Arnalds to Stein Thor, Vince Forwards and the unforgettable Ludovico Einaudi.
So I prepared two hours of just piano music for you to enjoy your Chillout Sunday. Tune in on 7th February 2021, 7 a.m. EST / 1 p.m. CET to FriskyRadio CHILL and get relaxed!
In November or so I recorded „Una Mattina“, but hesitated to upload it, since it was not perfect. It still isn’t, but I recorded a pretty good version and I’m satisfied for now. Maybe you like this version since it’s a bit different from the original.
On a side note I found out, Einaudi mostly sounds good with very bright pianos. The mellow pianos don’t fit most of his music.
The novel coronavirus has the world in its hands. But I can assure you, Waves is here to calm your panic down! The spring edition of my Ambient/Chillout show is about to bring pads and synths through your speakers that will let you know: In the end everything will be fine.
With me I have the Russian Sergey Tarasov, whose tracks I have played throughout the years more than once. His production style is Chillout Trance mostly, but in his DJ sets he features some glitchy tunes with deep pads and rumbling beats, too. It is a revelation hearing his selection! In 2019 he already played a Chillout Sundays set on Frisky.
The second hour is music I picked with music by Stefan Grossmann, Astroleaf, DJ Shah, Jellis & Subsets and some other great artists. There is nothing to be missed here!
Take your time on Sunday, April 5th, 2020, at 7 a.m. EST / 1 p.m. CET to switch to FriskyRadio CHILL and lower your heartbeat. You deserve it!

Writing it down, but I still can’t believe it: On the next Sunday I will have my 10-year-anniversary with Waves on FriskyRadio! I’ve had so many great shows, so many touching moments – be it with other artists or some fans. I’ve had great guests artist on my show and played so many fascinating and soothing tunes, but this time it will be different once again!
Located in Southern England is the chillout and piano musicianXeuphoria who produces and plays instruments alike. I asked him about being my guest and he delivered a stunning performance of 1 hour piano improvisation! I guess, this will be on heavy rotation for me for quite some time.
So at first you will hear this hour of pure piano and after that I will play you some of the best Trance Ambient tunes you have heard. Just last year I delivered a similar set, but there are more amazing tracks to be played!
The latest piano tunes I recorded have led me to playing some faster stuff and River Flows In You is just a flowing melody. Don’t expect me to know or like the books/movies that have afterwards been linked to the piece, I merely love the music this Japanese composer wrote.
There are 2 or 3 points where the recording isn’t perfect, but I’ll accept that for now.
While playing the piano more and more again, I have played some movie scores. I’ve always loved the „Forrest Gump“ movie score and here is the main theme, the feather theme. Don’t tell me it’s not perfectly played (like a pianist could), I know, but it’s a beautiful piece of music!
