Ralph Van Raat - Press

BBT Project: Gavin Bryars Piano Concerto The Solway Canal Naxos CD

“Bryars’s craftsmanship is undeniable, the sources imaginatively chosen and cleverly manipulated, the integrity absolute…Van Raat is a passionate, skilled advocate.”
Stephen Pettitt, Sunday Times March 2011

BBT Project: John Adams Complete Piano Music, CD on Naxos

“…van Raat obtains a near-hypnotic control in the two early pieces, almost mechanical in its reliability, and he bubbles with life in the later two”
International Piano Magazine March/April 2007 Martin Anderson

“Van Raat made “Phrygian Gates” grippingly sing, breathe naturally, blindingly change colours, fill the space with sonorous sounds and whisper intimately. Breath-taking”
Anthony Fium, Luister, June 2007
