''These eight pieces for solo piano explore the beauty and resonance found in small, quiet spaces. Calming and peaceful, Frerick den Haan’s composition explores the grandeur found in quietude''. - Robert Newsome wrote in Bandcamp Navigator about NOIR; (September release)'
''Frerick den Haan's Sketches of Tomorrow is not just a record, it is rather a tribute to life...This EP makes every nuance of the emotions inside exciting...Frerick den Haan entrusts his memory of love and his talent to classical music, giving us small atmospheric pearls capable of transferring our minds into a magical and wonderful world made of melodies, feelings and life''. - Marco Del Casale, Rockit
''We are faced with a painstaking, elegant and above all harmonious work, Haan could not do better, everything is in the right place...In our opinion the composer and pianist Frerick den Haan has brilliantly and genuinely managed to bring the sun back into our hearts'. - The Music Way Magazine
I write songs to clear my head, to capture the quiet places you can find in the hustle and bustle of everyday life. Furthermore, I really like to record from home, putting up two mics next to my piano and just hit the record button. This resulted in a few releases including NOIR (early-2020), Sketches of Tomorrow (late-2020), Trois Gnossiennes (early 2021), and mid-2021 I'll release the first volume of my omnibus project Bedroom Tapes.
Thank god there are people who like my music! For example, Robert Newsome. He wrote about NOIR; ''These eight pieces for solo piano explore the beauty and resonance found in small, quiet spaces. Calming and peaceful, Frerick den Haan’s composition explores the grandeur found in quietude''. (September 2020 - Bandcamp Navigator) Marco del Casale said that ''this EP makes every nuance of the emotions inside exciting'' about Sketches of Tomorrow.
I really hope my music will sparkle or trigger something within you. In the end, it is not about the likes, the number of streams or highest revenue stream. It is about touching as many as possible people's souls.
Earlier works include ''RED'' with the Frerick den Haan Trio.
