Description of Style

I see myself as a true crossover composer: my scope of work includes tonal and atonal compositions (e.g. film scores, performances), catchy compositions (for special occasions such as children's musicals and musical happenings), as well as my declared preference for chansons (with my own lyrics and music).
The most important factor for my work: sensuality, emotionality.

Press Reviews

2010

[...] a rare and glorious combination of piano, singing and a story narration [...]

European Professional Women's Network (Samira Ghanadyan)

 

26. February 2009

FLORA St.LOUP - a tender she-wolf: [...] in particular her refusal to be committed to any particular style makes Flora St.Loup´s artistic work so exciting [...] St.Loup's multiple talents possibly style her as a synthesis of the arts: as a performer, writer, composer, pianist, comedian [...] she elopes the audience and listeners into the vastness of a musical landscape where one may stroll between miracle trees [...] the roaming she-wolf caresses our souls with her songs creating a new, very feminine  signature. Particularly in her lyrics she has reached new heights [...]

Wiener Zeitung (Andreas Kövary)

 

20. September 1989

[...] because that is one thing she can do: entertain through musical comedy [...]

Kurier (Andrea Amort)

 

13. December 1988

[...] one of the rare evenings, where the frequent concert visitors were confronted with something they had really never heard before [...]

Die Presse

 

5. June 1987

The absurd "Valse informal" emerged as an infernal, absurd valse, determined and held together by the brilliant stage performance, acrobatic vocal skills and mimic relishing mutability of pianist Flora St-Loup: comparable to a musical female wolf she controls the scenery, building in the turning point and alibi for a story in which the two dancer-like combatants fade and become extras next to her.

Der Bund

 

17. June 1984

[...] a fancy bird who insistently proves that modern music does not have to be humourless [...]

Neue Kronen Zeitung

[...] bundle of energy [...]

maxima

[...] captivates her audience with acrobatics and exciting sensual atmosphere [...]

Dinersclub Magazin

[...] breathtaking [...] Flora St. Loup'ssolos were marked by self-irony, humor, and a lot of charm [...]

Kurier

[...] extremely spectacular[...] a strong stage presence [...]

Tagesanzeiger

[...] the full-blooded musician [...]

Brigitte

[...] humor of a poetic lightness [...] that only the French master so well, blossoms in Flora's compositions, some of which go entirely into the ear and into the heart [...]

Der Standard

[...] first-rate comedienne [...]

Wochenpresse

[...] She is sovereign in her singing  [...]

falter

[...] behind the sheepskin of a lean graceful appearance is a "wolf's voice", a volume, which one would not expect [...]

Oberösterreichisches Tagblatt

[...] her imagination and mischievous humor [...] phenomenal vocal acrobatics [...]

Neue Kronen Zeitung

[...] the spectacular and expressive performances of the singer were remarkable [...] all eyes were on her [...]

Neue Zürcher Zeitung

[...] sings hauntingly beautiful [...]
