Angelo Râpan inhabits the smallest ecosystem known to musicians: The place where heart and mind are perfectly in balance. Angelo comes to us from years of training and discipline to a place where his skills are immediately and dramatically apparent. What makes him stand apart, however, is the passion of his composition and performance which force us to encounter him on an emotional level far beyond what mere skill can provide. Those skills are certainly breathtaking, and his composition unique, but ultimately it is what he has to tell us of a life deeply and richly lived that matters.
