Residentie Orkest & Ralph van Raat

In 1948, Ton de Leeuw, one of the Netherlands’ most prominent composers, set his piano concerto aside and left for Paris to continue his studies. The piece was never completed. The score was recently rediscovered and shown to the famous pianist Ralph van Raat. He was so enthusiastic about it that we felt compelled to give this never-before-heard work its world premiere.
