About Duo Ingolfsson-Stoupel

Individually, Judith Ingolfsson and Vladimir Stoupel are seasoned soloists who have won acclaim for their performances across the globe. Together they create connections, tell untold stories, and take audiences on a journey to the heart of chamber music.

Violinist Judith Ingolfsson is recognized for her intense, commanding performances, uncompromising musical maturity, and charismatic performance style. Based in Berlin and Baltimore, and enjoying a global career, she performs regularly as soloist, chamber musician and in recital as the Duo Ingolfsson-Stoupel, founded in 2006. The New York Times has characterized her playing as producing “both fireworks and a singing tone” and Strings Magazine described her tone as “gorgeous, intense, and variable, flawlessly pure and beautiful in every register.”

Vladimir Stoupel is an individualist with an extraordinarily rich tonal and emotional palette. The Washington Post 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.

In this concert, the Duo Ingolfsson-Stoupel presents the program of their most recent CD release, La Belle Époque, featuring music from the French late Romantic period. In addition to César Franck beloved Violin Sonata, they introduce two rarities: the delightful Violin Sonata by Théodore Dubois and Eugène Ysaÿe’s Poème élégiaque. The monumentally influential performer, composer and pedagogue, Eugène Ysaÿe, is central to this exciting program, having been both the dedicatee and the premier performer of the Dubois and Franck Sonatas.
