Vladimir Stoupel is an individualist with an extraordinarily rich tonal and emotional palette. The Washington Post recently 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.
Mr. Stoupel has been a guest soloist with many world prestigious orchestras and conductors including the Berlin Philharmonic Orchestra, the Konzerthaus Orchestra Berlin, the German Symphony Orchestra, Christian Thielemann, Michail Jurowski, Leopold Hager, Marek Janowski, etc. Mr. Stoupel also has appeared on many of the world’s notable stages and music festivals. Together with the violinist Judith Ingolfsson, he is a co-artistic director and founder of the international festival “Aigues-Vives en Musiques”.
Mr. Stoupel’s interest in breaking up the at times rigid incrustations of the concert business and – in addition to the cultivation of the classics – in dedicating himself to the unjustly forgotten “edges of the repertoire” is also reflected in his CD recordings and diverse chamber music activities.
In recent years, Mr. Stoupel has also made a name for himself as a conductor. He conducts chamber operas at Konzerthaus Berlin on a regular basis, works with the Philharmonie Neubrandenburg, the Polish Chamber Philharmonic, the Berlin Kammerphilharmonie, among others. A main focus is on the works of the twentieth century and contemporary compositions. Thus, Stoupel gave an extremely successful debut at Iceland's Reykjavik Arts Festival. Since 2012 he regularly conducts concerts with the Brandenburg State Orchestra Frankfurt.
