Ralph van Raat

Das Buch der Klänge

Ralph van Raat – piano

It’s not the first time that Ralph van Raat has saved a contemporary jewel from oblivion. His current project is the oeuvre of the recently deceased German pianist and radio promoter Hans Otte. He promoted music by kindred spirits like Cage and Riley in his festival Pro Musica Nova, and left a formidable musical legacy. For Wonderfeel, Ralph chose Otte’s most famous unknown work:  Das Buch der Klänge, a 66-minute-long enchantment.
