“Either playing it or just listening to it, piano is one of the most liberating things I ever experienced,” Dirk Maassen tells Apple Music. The pianist/composer’s takeover of Piano Chill celebrates the instrument’s power to bring freedom and release. “I am happy to be guest-curating this famous playlist with some of the most beautiful and touching pieces I have ever heard,” he adds.

Besides Dirk Maassen, the playlist features wonderfully calm and relaxing music by Igor Levit, Alexis Ffrench, Khatia Buniatishvili, Eydís Evensen, Olivia Belli, Dardust, Lucas Debargue, Goldbaek, Rewired 88, Florian Christl, Olga Scheps, and many more.
