1997's Intimacy: Music for Love continues Raphael's passionate, creative musical journey. This time his piano skills are featured more prominently in his compositions than on other releases, creating a fittingly intimate mood. Intimacy's seven works span the range of sensual expression, from the contemplative ("Going Deeper") to the cathartic ("Forgiveness"). Transcendental and haunting, Intimacy is truly a labor of love.
