In a recent review, Clarke Bustard described Charles Staples' playing as "forceful...but unforced, as natural as breathing."
A native of Alabama and an honors graduate of the Alabama School of Fine Arts, Staples received his early training under Witold Turkiewicz.
Staples has held teaching and church music positions in Alabama, New York and Texas and is currently director of music ministries at Trinity United Methodist Church in Richmond, Va. He is on the music faculties of the University of Richmond and VCU and along with practicing piano, he practices martial arts as a black belt in Tae Kwon Do. Staples has performed as soloist with both the Richmond Symphony in Liszt's "Totentanz" and the Richmond Philharmonic in Beethoven's "Emperor Concerto," Rachmaninoff's "1st and 2nd Piano Concertos" and in Tchaikovsky's "1st Concerto. "[He] proved yesterday to be fully up to the technical and expressive demands of the Rachmaninoff concerto ... the pianist lifted more than 300 listeners out of their seats in a cheering ovation after a performance that was both bravura and lyrically sensitized. [Richmond Times Dispatch]
After his first recital in Richmond, Richmond News Leader music critic Francis Church wrote that Staples "is a pianist of prodigious talent, fire and thunder, blood and guts ... this was no metronomic key-banging.
