About this Recording
Opening Doors: Ralph van Raat talks to Jeremy Siepmann

OTTE, H.: Buch der Klange (Das) (The Book of Sounds) (van Raat)

The Book of Sounds is dedicated to all those who want to draw close to sound, so that, in the search for the sound of sound, for the secret of life, one’s own resonance is discovered.” These are the striking words with which the German composer, pianist, sound sculptor, poet and radio promoter Hans Otte introduced one of the most hauntingly beautiful and original piano compositions of the twentieth century. “Ralph van Raat is an exceptional talent who makes seemingly inaccessible music accessible, with an unconditional devotion and a direct emotional expressiveness.” (Philip Morris Arts Award Jury)
