About the Artist

Robert Koopmann OSB, a monk of Saint John's Abbey, Collegeville, Minnesota, possesses a unique response to music for the piano. His listeners are moved by the sincerity of his interpretations, the care he takes with the musical score, the warmth of his performances, and his belief in the transforming power of music. Praised by critics for his "fine musicianship," "vitality, energy and great feeling," his "masterpieces of shading and color," as well as "his astonishing bravura effects," Father Koopmann's programs include music of Mozart, Franck, Debussy, Rachmaninoff, Barber, Schumann, Chopin, Prokofiev, Brahms and others.
