In Stillness Two intense characters with reputations for occupying a different plane from the mundane world. Beethoven through his deafness and intensely creative spirit. Pärt through a monastic and meditative withdrawal. Perhaps this is a source for the profound depth their music shares. Vancouver’s own Jane Coop leads from the piano for a detailed interpretation of Beethoven on the VSO’s stunning new Steinway. Associate Conductor Andrew Crust guides an ethereal interpretation of Pärt’s Fratres.
