Hans Bakker

Welcome to my site!

His first Enhanced CD THE UNNAMED SOURCE features moving performances by the Moravian Philharmonic Orchestra under conductor Vit Micka and an astounding array of its instrumentalists.                 "Hans Bakker's music...combines the old and the new. He pushes you away with some jarring and unexpected clusters and chords before luring you back in with inviting melodies, glimpses of romanticism, and familiar tropes".                   -Kraig Lamper, American Record Guide May/June '11

Subsequent releases include SLICES, namely his "DUO voor viool en klarinet", and SEEKING & FINDING with seven choral works performed by the Kuhn Choir Prague. Featured on the following compilation CD DANCES OF ETERNITY are Bakker’s orchestral works Canzona L’altra Persona and Canzona II: Tribute to the Sun; “....I have heard some things by Netherlander Hans Bakker before and have enjoyed his direct and compelling style. The two canzoni heard here: Canzona L’altra Persona and Canzona II Tribute to the Sun are both absorbing works and offer some nice contrast. The 'L’altra Persona' is a very brooding, introspective work that sounds a little bit like film music in places (perhaps John Barry) and tension-filled throughout but his 'Tribute to the Sun' is a work that starts dark and gets "brighter" (if you will) and really does exude a sunrise feel to it. I thought these two works work very well separately but also pair very well, as heard here....”                                               (Audiophile Audition, DANCES OF ETERNITY, June 11, 2013 - by Daniel Coombs)

About his compositions Hans Bakker says:                         I believe in the power of artistic beauty and lyricism. In my view music need not necessarily be easy for the ear, but it should be accessible to the mind; and must be able to tune the receptive listener. My intention as a composer is to awaken the emotional nature in man, so that he may come to himself for a moment.
