In Australia for the first time - Musical Meteor, an astonishing pianist and contemporary composer.

Hania Rani is one of the most successful and intriguing pianists in the world right now. A transcendent talent, 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), initially inspired to study classical music, she was introduced to jazz and electronica 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 inspire me, their special approach to music and sound. For me, they have big hearts and huge minds.'

‘You could tell from the first note, she is definitely a chosen one, I’m completely stunned. I didn’t think I’d ever say this ......, but I’m actually scared to listen to it again, it’s so good.’

"Emotional rather than intellectual, genre-bending and boundary-breaking, rhythmic rather than atonal, creating a world that the listener is swept up in." - Forbes
