For the 7th consecutive year the Music Service takes place at the Catholic Church, 46 Halidon, Chania, on 29th December at 21.00.
Performing: Michael Heupel – cello, and Ilias Vlamakis – Cretan lyre
Theme of this year’s musical service: ‘Beginning and End’
“We’re just at the beginning, you see.
As if everything is in front of us. With
a thousand dreams behind us –
I cannot imagine any more lasting knowledge:
that one has to become a beginner.
Someone who will write the first word after one
that will last for centuries. ”
– R.M. Rilke
ABOUT THE CELLIST:
Michael Heupel, born 1988 in Athens, is a sought-after soloist and chamber musician. He has performed in important music halls all around the world and has won prizes in international competitions.
He plays on a cello built in 1723 by David Tecchler in Rome.
Michael Heupel’s repertoire ranges from the baroque to contemporary music, while also delving into improvisation and other genres of music. While his interpretations of the classical repertoire have earned great public response and critical acclaim, his dedication to the study and interpretation of contemporary music has prompted many composers to write works for him.
