Sketches of Tomorrow | Frerick den Haan
One of the many memories Frerick carries with him when it comes to his grandparents is the shared love of music. After losing all his grandparents in a short time, he threw himself back into composing music for solo piano.
The pieces are a homage to their lives and thus a lasting memory for him and his family. In other words, the closing chapter of a very special book.
The album title Sketches of Tomorrow refers to looking back and looking ahead in life. ''The wise lessons I learned from my grandparents in the past are my personal sketches for in the future'', as Frerick points out. The title therefore insinuates a new chapter in life.
Partly thanks to his grandparents, Frerick was introduced to a whole legion of classical musicians, including Erik Satie, Debussy, Beethoven and Chopin, who left a lasting impression on him. In addition to his own style, the sounds of these masters therefore also shimmer through in his own compositions.
