Sonata for Piano No. 1 "Re-sonances" (2022-2023)
For Piano solo

Commissioned by and dedicated to Ralph van Raat

The Piano Sonata No. 1 "Re-sonances" is inspired by many years of friendship between Ralph van Raat and the composer. In fact Ralph van Raat has given the world premieres of both of De Raaffs Piano Concertos. The world premiere of Piano Concerto No. 1 was in the Festival of Contepmorary Music in Tanglewood commissioned by the Boston Symphony Orchestra.
Piano Concerto No. 2 Circulus was conceived 20 years later, when both artists were in an established stage in their careers a full genearation later, hence the subtitle Circulus, which also refers to the thematic core based on large and small circular movements in time and space.

In the years in between these two larger works, and earlier in fact, Ralph has repeatedly asked for a composition for solo piano written especially for him, which is now finally taking shape.
