Vladimir Stoupel returns to St. Mary’s to present a timely recital. His program features several pieces composed in reflection on World War I. This look back into history helps us to cope with the crisis-ridden present and to commemorate the lives lost in the war. We need distance to be able to process all this. Music is especially necessary in times of crisis! It offers us a protected space; it gives us the opportunity to reflect. War destroys, music builds up.
Vladimir Stoupel is an individualist with an extraordinarily rich tonal and emotional palette. The Washington Post praised his “protean range of expression” and Der Tagesspiegel Berlin described his performance as “enthralling and atmospherically dense.” His extraordinary technical command allows him to explore the outermost limits of expression, mesmerizing audiences with his musical intensity.
|Guests are invited to make a free will offering to defray the expense of Mr. Stoupel’s performance and to make it possible for St. Mary’s to host more such events.
