Hania Rani – Live in Australia

Concert or Performance

4 May 2023 Once Only Event

In Australia for the first time – musical meteor, astonishing pianist and contemporary composer Hania Rani.

Hania Rani is one of the most successful and intriguing pianists in the world right now. A transcendent talent, Rani is a classically-trained pianist able to evoke the sparseness of her native Polish Bieszezady mountain landscape while teasing enough latent energy to keep you on the edge of your seat.

Rani grew up in Gdansk (Poland), and initially inspired to study classical music, she was introduced to jazz and electronics at music school, widening her interests and as she puts it, “mixing Chopin & Schostakovitch with Dave Brubeck and Moderat”. Other inspirations include composers such as Max Richter, Esbjorn Svensson, Miles Davis, Nils Frahm, Murcof, Portico Quartet, Radiohead and even The Beatles. “It’s what connects all these artists that inspires me, their special approach to music and sound,” she says. “For me they have big hearts and huge minds.”

Her debut album Esja, a beguiling collection of solo piano pieces on Gondwana Records, earnt four prestigious Fryderyk Awards and saw Hania receive the distinguished Sanki Award for ‘New Face of Polish Music’. Her follow-up album, Home, adds vocals and subtle electronics. The album earned Rani another Fryderyk award for ‘Best Composer’ and a Transatlantyk Golden Ark Award for ‘Best Young Polish Composer’.
