Obituary: Remembering Vitalij Kuprij

With heavy hearts, we share the news of the passing of the exceptionally talented Vitalij Kuprij. A maestro on the piano and a cherished member of our musical family, Vitalij’s departure leaves a void that words cannot adequately express.

Born with an innate passion for music, Vitalij Kuprij rose to global acclaim as a classical pianist and composer. His journey with the piano was not just a career but a vivid expression of his soul. In 2010, Vitalij’s path led him to join the Trans-Siberian Orchestra for their “Beethoven’s Last Night” tour. This collaboration marked the beginning of an extraordinary era for both Vitalij and the band. His impeccable skill and electrifying stage presence brought a new dimension to our performances, leaving audiences in awe at every show.

Vitalij’s talents extended beyond the grand stages and into the realms of intellectual pursuits and leisure. An avid chess player, he engaged with the same intensity and focus that he brought to his music. His love for fishing offered a glimpse into the more serene and reflective side of his personality, a contrast to the dynamic artist seen on stage. Vitalij’s spirit was infectious; his humor and love for life made every moment with him a joyous one.

The loss of Vitalij is not just a loss to the world of music but to all who knew him. His absence creates a silence that will be deeply felt. As we mourn, we also celebrate the extraordinary life he led and the countless lives he touched with his music and his warmth.

Rest in peace, Vitalij Kuprij. Your music will continue to resonate in our hearts, and your memory will forever be a melody that soothes our souls. You are deeply missed, but never forgotten.
