JOEP BEVING’S HENOSIS GETS DELUXE EDITION, OUT FEBRUARY 7 ON DEUTSCHE GRAMMOPHON

“KLANGFALL” VIDEO DEBUTS TODAY

NEW SOLO PIANO VERSION OF “KLANGFALL” ALSO OUT TODAY

TOUR EXTENDED WITH 2020 DATES IN U.S.

Deutsche Grammophon is set to release a deluxe edition of internationally acclaimed Dutch artist Joep Beving’s 2019 album Henosis on February 7. In celebration, the video for “Klangfall” debuts today; watch and share the video HERE. Beving’s new solo piano version of “Klangfall” also debuts today, one of four solo piano tracks featured on Henosis Deluxe. Listen to the single HERE and pre-order Henosis Deluxe HERE. Beving will also be touring the United States in February, making stops at intimate venues in Chicago, Portland, Seattle, Oakland and Los Angeles; more details below.

Henosis, the grand and sprawling finale in Beving’s trilogy of albums, which includes Solipsism (2015) and Prehension (2017), was released in 2019, marking his first foray into composing for ensemble. The deluxe package sees “Klangfall,” “Orvonton,” “Sol and Luna” and “Shepherd” stripped down to just the warm, intimate sound of Beving’s beloved Schimmel piano, a process that reveals further beauty and the sheer depth of his compositional talent.

Beving has enjoyed unprecedented success in the contemporary classical music world, with over 300 million streams on Spotify and his critically acclaimed album Prehension now certified Gold. He has sold out shows across the world from the Sydney Opera House to the Festival International de Jazz de Montréal and the Bravo stage at Lowlands 2019.

This announcement caps a stellar year for the composer. Beving was recently announced as the winner of an Edison Award—an annual prize recognizing outstanding achievement in the music industry—in the Neoclassical category. The jury praised Henosis as the “most exciting and most versatile album” of his career so far, an “intense listening experience” that marked a “step forward” in his sound.

Such acclaim has been mirrored by public reaction: a top performer in contemporary classical streaming charts, the elegant, wistful “Unus Mundus” was selected by Spotify from Henosis for its Peaceful Piano playlist, reaching over five million followers. Demand for his previous work remains strong, with Deutsche Grammophon also reprinting his 2017 album Prehension on vinyl last June.

Beving started composing in 2014 to battle his own growing sense of alienation, in the hope that his music would resonate with audiences and help them to understand how interconnected they are. “We’re all part of one thing,” he says. “And so we need to love ourselves, each other and this world we inhabit. Establishing connections as humans makes our species stronger.”

With this new deluxe edition, Beving hopes more will join him on his journey, celebrating not just life in all its glory but the communal aspect of music and its ability to unite us. His trilogy is complete, and the power of his music remains as strong as ever.
