Hania Rani – Live from Studio S2

Listen to 'Live from Studio S2': https://hania-rani.lnk.to/Live-from-Studio-S2

The full live set video was premiered on the evening before the annual Piano Day worldwide celebrations (March 29th). The motivation to make the recording of the live performances which became the release ‘Live from Studio S2’ came from the invitation from the Berlinale Film Festival.

“I decided to rearrange some of my favourite songs, which I have been performing live for years. Recorded live and captured in the iconic Studio S2, one of the recording studios of Polish Radio in Warsaw. The hall is fully covered with light wood, which reminds me of other Radio Studios all around the world - like Funkhaus in Berlin for example. There is a kind of intimacy when playing the little piano in this huge and also very high venue.” — @Hania Rani

“In the beginning of February 2021, I was asked to record a live set as a part of EFM sessions, which are the part of the Festival. I thought that bringing back my piano and equipment to the hall where I recorded my live session videos for my debut album 'Esja' would be a nice idea and the right cinematic choice. The iconic Studio S2 is one of the recording studios of Polish Radio in Warsaw. The hall is fully covered with light wood, which reminds me of other Radio Studios all around the world - like Funkhaus in Berlin. It felt very special to be in the hall where we recorded a video for "Glass", one of my most liked videoclips. There is a kind of intimacy when playing the little piano in this huge and also very high venue.”

I don’t know what just happened…. I heard a note played repeatedly with an unorthodox muting technique I’ve never seen. A voice spoke and I was taken back by how gentle she sounded compared to the pure emotional storm from her music. A few notes on an analog synth were played and a stone was placed to sustain a rhythmic note and an arpeggio played.. She sang as well. Today is a good day.

This is what I want my 11 year old daughter listening to! Having a little girl, I have noticed my focus has shifted towards strong, truly talented, creative and ground breaking female musicians like Hania, like Agnes Obel, LP, Aurora, Laura Mvula, Zoe Keating, Ruelle and Arca...( I could go on) to inspire her and show her what she is capable of achieving. Women musicians rock!

Very, very good! I love how the compositions grow and evolve with more and more flavours and nuances … a little bit like one of my favourite composers Arvo Pärt, but completely original. Bravo!

I have never before seen any atrist handle an instrument in such way as Hania does it, so unique. She feels the music so well she's able to tell stories with it, stories from her heart that reach the deepest corners of our psyche. Whenever I listen to her music I feel like crying because of the sheer beauty of the vibrations and rythms coming from the work of this incredible musician... I can't wait to see her life :)

Hania Rani is one of those rare artists who has seemingly mastered the technique of restraint. She's always keeping you held on by a single thread, never giving anything away too early.
Not many other artists with such a beautiful voice would wait 15 minutes to start singing– and yet, by taking her time to establish the instrumental world first, she allows just enough time for us to forget about the human voice, making it even more enchanting when she finally reminds us.

She's truly a genius composer of modern classical.

I had a dream... The dream of a talented artist creating infinity somewhere inside a triangle made of Keith Jarrett for free melodies, Hans Zimmer for convoluted 3D harmonics, and John Butler for moving rythms. And then she was, just as a pure evidence. Thanks so much Hania for being what you are -- the simple proof that music remains possible in this world of sounds and noises.

Yes! A new horizon! A new dimension! A new time! A new music! And a charismatic artist who lives this music in a unique and unprecedented performance. No staging: the documentary about the magic of creativity. Dedication and a real, deep, lived enthusiasm that allows an art form to blossom to perfection. All who live from music and who live for music, are put under a wonderful spell. A musical quake and the aftershocks have only just begun.

Wow!! To discover new music is one of the best moments in life for me. To discover new music by a Polish woman; being Polish myself but born in South Africa and never having lived in Poland; makes me feel like I have a new connection to my parent's roots. Dziękuję bardzo Hania!

This is one of the most amazing performances I've ever seen. As a professional musician myself it's hard not to appreciate every little detail here and every note in this performance is there for a reason. She really puts her heart into it, beyond magical... still she seem so humble afterwards. Man, I am glad I stumbled upon this today, today is a great day. Peace

Maciej Graszk:
The transitions between the quiet and the loud are so smooth and the ever constant playing of the same key or keys it just creates such an immersive world that I'm scared to close my eyes because I would get lost in it and never came back. You know beauty when you see it, in this case when you here but what you can see here is her love and passion for the instrument. You can really see she knows it, that she spent more time with the piano than with any other person. I don't know how did love like this was found and how it was managed to be kept alive in this cruel world. I'm impressed, I'm astonished by the BEAUTY.

Speechless. This beautiful woman is a testament as to how we need to allow our children to discover their creative selves wholeheartedly....by breaking the rules and experimenting. This child is a true angel and as Mako says "was kissed by the music of god". I am also hooked. This kind of creativity, if multiplied, and expanded, holds the secret to a new and better world.

"Buka" is my favourite, although it means 'beech', as in the beech tree in Polish, in my language it means 'open' and it perfectly encapsulates the piece. It keeps opening until it suddenly shuts at the end. Beautiful stuff

Космос... Как она чувствует звуки... Гениальная девушка. Эмоция в каждой ноте, в каждом дыхании. И вся идея наложений гениальна. А играет как.... И если вдруг меня спросить - где и в чем итог человеческой цивилизации, где "выхлоп"? ...Вот он. Такое чувство, что Вселенная и родилась-то только для того, чтоб через почти 14 миллиардов лет создать вот это чудо. Гений разума, таланта и технологий.

Jac Morrison:
She’s so encapsulating when she plays, i love how it seems like she is barely looking at the piano for parts, and totally immersed in it for others. Her outfit, the movement of her hair, the way she is so chill and relaxed during this moving performance... damn. Respect. The music itself its obviously fucking fantastic, but her performance should be acknowledged. It’s hard to do it this well, all the way around.
