The second piano evening in the series Beethoven Inspires will take place November 20 and will be performed by the Romanian pianist Eduard Stan. The evening organized in cooperation with the Romanian Cultural Institute.
Few composers have made such profound impressions in music history as Beethoven. Both composers and listeners have been inspired and captivated by his musical genius and creativity through the years. Thanks to Beethoven Inspires we will this autumn hear examples of how famous composers have been influenced by Beethoven.
The pianist Eduard Stan was born in Brasov in Transylvania and relocated to Germany when he was eleven years old. He received his musical training at the Academy of Music in Hannover, where he studied with Arie Vardi. He has an extensive repertoire ranging from classical piano music to contemporary composers and has performed in major venues such as Carnegie Hall in New York, the Kennedy Center in Washington, Konzerthaus in Vienna and Salle Cortot in Paris. Eduard Stan has made extensive recordings of the Romanian composer George Enescu and founded the Enescu Festival in Heidelberg in 2005. He has also devoted himself to orchestral conducting.
Beethoven Inspires will take place in Umeå and is organized by the Swedish Clementi Society together with Umeå Chamber Music Society, Umeå city church and Teg’s congregation. The concert by Eduard Stan on November 20 is a collaboration with the Romanian Cultural Institute.
