About the event
Get ready to be mesmerised by a unique fusion of new impressionism, jazz, cinematic and indie sounds as Frerick den Haan takes center stage for a piano solo concert in a secluded and hidden chapel in the centre of The Hague. Imagine the colourful music of Ravel, the raw emotion of Death Cab for Cutie, and the cinematic excellence of Hans Zimmer all rolled into unique compositions by Frerick himself.
Frerick den Haan is a pianist and composer from The Hague (NL). Escaping the hectic pace of the day, he creates his own world with his compositions in which chaos is transformed into order, creating an escapade to a certain form of tranquility for the mind. Something many of his listeners can relate to. He continuously experiments in his music with elements from film music, classical music and pop music, consciously seeking out the melancholy of the piano.
With a short run-up, Frerick managed to find millions of people being captivated by his soothing melodies. In 2021 three of his compositions landed straight in a row in the largest Spotify editorial playlists, including Classical New Releases, Instrumental Study, Atmospheric Piano and Piano Chill; Apple Music's largest neo-classical playlist. His music was used in the short animated film L'Étranger composed and directed by illustrator and animator Sarah Pannekoek. The film was nominated several times at renowned national and international film festivals including FilmOneFest (USA), Framed Groningen (NL) and Longless Film Festival (IT).
In addition to his solo piano project, he plays keys in the Dutch indie pop band Handsome Poets, and recently wrote the music for NFT art projects by generative artist Beer van Geer (NL).
