    Thank you, Karl, for your music and your insights into the Puglia painting of St. Cecilia. I just visited the WAG last week and spent some time in the Salon Style exhibition.

    That was not only an enticing morsel for the intellect but it was also a feast for the heart and soul. Karl Stobbe’s narrative was passionate without being contrived. Love the partnership of musician as narrator for the artist.
