Joep Beving composes and performs pieces for piano with a delicacy and a sense of stateliness that puts him right in there with the likes of Nils Frahm and Olafur Arnalds. Solipsism, his debut, was recorded in the middle of the night for extra depth of feeling: this is neo-classical piano of the most relaxing sort. Originally released on On I Are Giant and now reissued by Deutsche Grammophon.

9/10 Jamie Staff review, 26 April 2016

I'm half way through the opening track on Joep's latest CD and I am struck by the clear and overwhelming thought that this is the sort of stately, austere and classical work that Nils Frahm would give his right hand to authentically replicate.. or at least the pinkie finger on his right hand. He could still play the piano then, right? I'm pretty sure he could.. Skills.

Anyway on with 'Solipsism', then: it's one beautiful, elegiac and tranquil reveal after another -- bare, minimal, stripped-back and all that -- but the piano sounds like the warm, breathing and emotionally enriching musical instrument it has the potential to be. Here, under Beving's caressing manipulations, it is an instrument of genuine breadth and depth; it towers, gracefully. It hovers gently, it flutters like an exotic butterfly. A lovely, lovely, rewarding record.
