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

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.

I'm Austrian living in Tavronitis, love nature, music, good books, sunsets, the sea, travelling, socializing and more. I came to Crete as a student in the early 70s, exploring the west and southwest of the island with friends by motorbike. When you are young everything is important and, there are lots of things to do...I did. Job, family,children, travelling the world. But I never lost my love for Crete for a minute. And seven years ago I ended up in this convenient corner of Crete, not only for holidays, but to stay and haven't regretted it for a minute.
