Het Verlangen Desire
On the CD 'Het Verlangen' (desire) the Dutch composer and self taught pianist Johan Bakker touches the piano in a relaxed way, searches the keys in a melancholy and melodic way, and challenges the piano without sheet music. This is piano music with a high level of sensitivity. Reviews on his website: '... I *love* your music! This is my kind of CD! Gorgeous. Beautiful...' '...Your playing is very entrancing.........' '...I have listened to your music. They are beautiful..' Johan about his music: 'Get teached how to play the piano takes a lot of energy. Playing from sheet music demands attention all the time. This is not the way I can do it and I never did. I do it my way in creating sensitivity. Just listen to the songs. This is music for sultry summer evenings, emotional people, dreamers and people searching for a nice atmosphere. So, it is for you'. '..I listened many samples of different artists but all of them I liked Het Verlangen a lot. Great music..'. (S. Ventrapragada, Dracut). His second solo album: Whisperkiss. His third solo album Concert for Civilization is for sale now !
