About The Event
Emerging as one of the distinctive voices of a new generation of pianists, pianist Andrew Staupe has appeared as soloist with the Baltimore Symphony, San Diego Symphony, Minnesota Orchestra, Houston Symphony, and many other illustrious orchestras throughout the United States. He has collaborated with distinguished conductors Osmo Vänskä, Cristian Macelaru, Gerard Schwarz, and many others, and has appeared at some of the finest venues in the world including at the Concertgebouw in Amsterdam, the Kennedy Center in Washington, DC, and at Carnegie Hall in New York City. Regarding his virtuosity, The Washington Post reported “[Staupe] is a fastidious player, whose imagination takes wing when playing alone.” Deeply committed to teaching, Mr. Staupe is an Assistant Professor of Piano at The University of Utah.
Mr. Staupe performs three impressionistic selections from composer Debussy’s second book of preludes—Brouillards, La puerta del Vino, and Feux d’artifice—as well as Schumann’s romantic and colorful Humoreske. Prokofiev’s fiendishly difficult Seventh Sonata concludes the evening.
