Excellent reviews on Concerto performances

Ralph’s world premiere performances with Ton de Leeuw’s recently found Piano Concerto of 1948, which he performed with the Resident Orchestra, got excellent reviews in Dutch national newspapers Volkskrant and NRC Handelsblad. Quoting: ‘Van Raat plays crystal clear and forced an extraordinary concentration onto his listeners’ (Merlijn Kerkhof/Volkskrant); ‘Van Raat’s playing was alternatingly light and flexible, such as in the beautifully executed cadenza in the first movement, and acute in the fast rhythmic passages’ (Joep Christenhusz, NRC Handelsblad).
