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.”

She plays the piano so desperately like the world will explode if she even stops to breathe for a second.. It's honestly mesmerizing!
I’m 70, never really looking for new music but it finds me, through kids and the (mostly) amazing internet, and so happy to be found. This post is amazing and I’m awed by Hania’s creativity. Many thanks💜💕
I just read an article in the NYT, I think, about why are so many people revisiting our generations music and loving it so much. But it’s always been so. In the 70’s we listened to Stevie wonder, pink Floyd, the white album etc, but many of us also loved and sang and performed, or tried to, Ella Fitzgerald, cole porter, Beethoven and Bolero. I bless the internet daily for how accessible everything is, from Bach to Radiohead. And now this beautiful sound
It feels like the soul blends into the sound ... fusion with the sound ... wonderful!!(2022/5/22)

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.
Dixie Flatline
Dixie Flatline:
Beautiful, alien, crystalline patterns expanding behind my closed eyes. Her music is full of duality. From the use of old and new technology, experiment & homage, confidence and doubt, frustration and celebration. All co-existing and complimenting each other - this is the human condition expressed in music.

What a gift this is. I've listened to this recording many times now and am always deeply moved by its beauty, its invention, and its power. As an improvisational musician myself I find it enormously inspiring. Thank you.
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

Um, holy cow. The mental and nervous system training & discipline is as impressive as (more than?) the music, the artistry, and the loop coordination. Awesome. Gotta buy some of this artist to do my part in generating a tiny bit of revenue to reward this.

Bernie Franklin:
She is so itense, emotional and incredible. Her music conveys her heart and all of her emotions. I cannot imagine her like other artists who's music is just notes on a page. Her music transcends musical poetry and life itself. Words cannot express the feeling her music brings to me. Thank you Hani.

She puts a pulse in her music, if that makes any sense. It has a heartbeat and I really admire how she plays. The Polish really are masters of music
It took 10 seconds of listening to start liking it. About 30 seconds to start loving it. This is first time I hear this young lady playing, and I’m very happy I did !

Her music is skipping the mind, storming ahead directly to my heart. Hania Rani's musical performance is more than music, it's a ballet of fingers, face and body. I can literally feel her heartbeat. She shares her passion and talent through the piano and keyboards and that is hard to put into words. An attempt anyway: emotions - Grateful for this trip, I will recommend this to many many others - Great video - Greatness
She plays the piano so desperately like the world will explode if she even stops to breathe for a second.. It's honestly mesmerizing!
The greatest thanks from my heart. I feel tranquility, enlarged movements of particles, and atoms at the same time from your play. That energy contains your beatiful soul is a great gift for someone like me. Thank you.

Her music beautifully moves along my soul, the string hammers add an almost tactal presence to her sound. Just wonderful.
I discovered this young lady purely by luck. I was listening to some random internet radio station and they were playing her concert. 3 of her CDs later, her music of the most relaxing of my considerable collection. Remarkable.

Amazing! Thanks to Rick Beato for pointing me in the direction of Ted Gioia, who led me to this performance. Art that matters will find it's way to those who seek it.
Nothing else matters when listening to this...it's like everything fades into insignificance and all that is left is the awesome power of the flow of energy taking place. What a beautiful musician she is.

Absolutnie niezwykłe i poruszające. Wsłuchując się w Twoją twórczość, mam wrażenie, że trafiam do zupełnie innego, lepszego miejsca na ziemi. Dość nierealnym wydaje się fakt, że w kraju pogrążonym w ciemności i nieszczerości powstaje coś tak czystego i bezpretensjonalnego. Przesiąknięte szczerością i emocjonalnością dźwięki przynoszą ulgę. Niekiedy popłynie łza, ale to tylko potwierdza powyższe. Dziękuję za to.

This makes me want to “do my own thing” more than ever, not caring what people think, like she’s giving me permission to just play the real music in my heart, even though it might be different than what people want and expect from me.

Total aside: I hope “my own thing” sounds a little bit like Hania!

So grateful to see Hania perform live last night in Geneva. Soo beautiful. no more words to describe...
I’m entranced and totally enchanted by this beautiful young creative…grateful to have stumbled upon Hania Rani👏🏼💜👏🏼💜👏🏼
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.

Since an acoustic piano is a loud instrument it is really hard to avoid distortion when you use delay. I really like the gentle passages. Bravo!😄

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.
