Album Notes
On the CD 'Het Verlangen' (desire) the Dutch composer and self taught pianist Johan Bakker touches the piano in a relaxed way, searches the keys in a melancholy and melodic way, and challenges the piano without sheet music.

This is piano music with a high level of sensitivity.

Reviews on his website:

'... I *love* your music! This is my kind of CD!
Gorgeous. Beautiful...'

'...Your playing is very entrancing.........'

'...I have listened to your music. They are beautiful..'

Johan about his music:
'Get teached how to play the piano takes a lot of energy. Playing from sheet music demands attention all the time. This is not the way I can do it and I never did. I do it my way in creating sensitivity.
Just listen to the songs. This is music for sultry summer evenings, emotional people, dreamers and people searching for a nice atmosphere. So, it is for you'.

'..I listened many samples of different artists but all of them I liked Het Verlangen a lot. Great music..'.
(S. Ventrapragada, Dracut).

His second solo album: Whisperkiss. His third solo album Concert for Civilization is for sale now !

What can I say that expresses how I feel about this music? It is different from anything in piano that I've heard. From the time I first heard it several yrs ago, to now, it has touched my inner core. It is very emotional to me, as are the next two of Johan Bakker's cds. This one, however, carried me through a very difficult time. You have to "feel" this man's piano.
