Review on Thursday’s Messiaen/Debussy/Ravel/Boulez concert

Yesterday, a very positive review was written in newspaper De Volkskrant about Ralph’s performance, last Thursday night, in the Muziekgebouw aan ‘t IJ in Amsterdam. He played Dutch first performances of unknown works by Debussy, Ravel and Messiaen, plus some works by Boulez. Quoting reviewer Bela Luttmer: ‘[Messiaen’s birds] tweeted under Van Raat’s virtuosic hands…What a fascinating, rich harvest.’
