Composer and performer Joep Beving, one of the most listened-to living pianists in the world, joined Deutsche Grammophon to release his new album ‘Prehension’ on 7th April. Dutch musician Joep (pronounced ‘Yoop’) is a towering figure in the streaming world – and in real life too, thanks to his two-metre frame (nearly 6’10), wild hair and flowing beard. He has become a one-man success story – writing, recording and releasing his debut album ‘Solipsism’ which has been streamed nearly 60 million times.
‘Prehension’ carries forward the musical and philosophical themes Joep identifies in his music. Understated, haunting and melancholic, its delicate melodies will help soothe the soul.
