Happy Birthday, Nils Frahm!

Since reading a feature article in the local paper whilst you were touring in Sydney, Australia earlier in this year, I have in effect enjoyed your music. If I recall, you mentioned the idea of non-lyrical music, or classical music, lasting longer. During that part of the year, I was discovering that for myself. I love beautiful, thoughtful, and emotional lyrics in songs, and I search for that, but then I realised Schubert, Liszt, Peter Gabriel, Bach, Gabriel Yared, Arnalds, yourself, and many others make me feel just as much, if not more, because of what is already in me, and what is created in the imagination just by listening to music with no words. In a way, the convergence of those two is the expanse of music, and being human now.

Thank you for allowing us to participate in this competition.

Yours sincerely,

Mart Basa.
