DeLange, Tristesse Review
DeLange is an Amsterdam based neo-romantic composer and pianist that writes original music with a strong influence from the romantic and early modern era. DeLange writes primarily for solo piano and has a deep connection and believes in the creative process as both a performer and composer. DeLange explains, “I strongly feel composers and performers conduct time and space. They stretch or compress one’s experience of a moment and choose to put the listener in a tight room or in outer space. Furthermore, composers are able to capture the raw emotions of life and convert them into audible images for reminiscing.” DeLange completed his classical training at the conservatory and started working as a pianist writing for and accompanying other artists. However, soon he felt the inner urge to capture his emotions of life with his own repertoire. Now at 46 years of age, the long evolution as a pianist, composer and as a human being is captured in his writing, producing and recording of his first album. “Tristesse” is a neo romantic composition and the first single from his up-coming release.
