Concert – Martin Stadtfeld | piano & scholarship holders of the Villa Musica

31 Oct 2021

Martin Stadtfeld plays Bach's D minor concerto - a must for classical music fans and a tribute to Auguste Rodin, the hero of the year at the Arp Museum. In his house in Meudon, the great sculptor preferred to be awakened with music by Bach. Stadtfeld and young string players from the Villa Musica remind us of this. The pianist from the Westerwald became famous for his Bach, but he is equally adept at lush late Romanticism. In César Franck's mighty Piano Quintet, he chisels the notes into the foyer of the Arp Museum like Rodin his sculptures. Debussy's late cello sonata matches the Rodin of his later years.
