Acclaimed pianist and composer Joep Beving has digitally released his new EP The London Session. The recording features two different versions of ‘September', a meditation for piano and string quartet on stillness and concentration, and a new arrangement of ‘An Amalgamation Waltz 1839', for voice, piano and string quartet, featuring soprano Grace Davidson.

Joep Beving explained, "‘September' was composed in late summer, early fall of last year, hence the title of the piece. At the time, there wasn't a bigger thought behind the music. I was invited to come and record two pieces at Tileyard Studios in London and we decided that next to a vocalised version of ‘An Amalgamation Waltz 1839' we should create a new piece that would fit in well with the feeling of that song. The live premiere of ‘September', performed with ACME, took place at The Triple Door in Seattle last February, which feels like another lifetime now. The piece reminds me of a time before Covid and the turmoil that it triggered. Let's pray for love and light to prevail before September 2021."
