Review on Joep Franssens’ Piano Concerto!

Trouw has published a great review, written by Frederike Berntsen, about last week’s performance(s) of Joep Franssens’ new Piano Concerto for chamber orchestra, as performed by Ralph and the PHION orchestra conducted by Otto Tausk: Ralph van Raat, tireless advocate of the newest music, gave the first performance of the revised version of Franssens’ concerto from 2015, and acted as the source for a deep listening mode. Also in this work, the pianist showed his tremendous dedication to the contemporary classical repertoire: his approach is intelligent and well cared for; nothing is coincidental, but it all sounds natural.
