Joep Beving – 'Klangfall' – live in Amsterdam

Watch Dutch neo-classical pianist and composer Joep Beving in this scintillation live performance from Amsterdam’s Contergebouw.

“Klangfall” is a work from Joep Beving’s 2019 album Henosis. On this album, Joep explores a richer, more textured soundworld through the use of modular synthesisers, strings, and chamber choir. Joep describers the album as ” an album about unity, a musical journey that (hopefully) makes you forget that you are here.”

This full range of colour is on display in this live performance at the world-renowned Royal Concertgebouw in Amsterdam. Completed in 1888, this venue has been the centre of classical music in the Netherlands for over a century.

Joep performs with Maarten Vos on synthesizers, Cappella Amsterdam chamber choir, and chamber ensemble the Echo Collective.

Henosis, the album by Joep Beving, is out now to stream.

About Joep Beving

Joep Beving is one of the most listened-to pianists of our current age. Pronounced ‘Yoop’, the Dutch musician is a towering figure in the streaming world – and in real life too, thanks to his two-metre tall build, wild hair and striking visage. He has become a one-man success story – writing, recording and releasing his debut album Solipsism, which has surmounted over 140 million streams. Beving released the understated, haunting and melancholic second instalment to Solipsism, Prehension, in 2017.

Beving’s album from 2018, Conatus, is a collaborative album, featuring a selection of artists chosen to rework his earlier compositions.

Henosis, released in April 2019, is the third in the Solipsism – Prehension trilogy – released on label Deutsche Grammophon.
