CARNEGIE HALL PRESENTS

Ralph van Raat by Simon van Boxtel
Ralph van Raat’s Carnegie Hall debut recital is surely one you will remember. The adventurous Dutch pianist plays world premieres of a new work by Louis Andriessen, commissioned by Carnegie Hall, and a previously unpublished composition by Pierre Boulez. If that wasn’t enough, he tackles Alkan’s Symphony for Solo Piano, a tour de force whose spectacular colors, quirky rhythmic turns, and sheer intensity make gargantuan technical demands on the pianist.
