SONGS MY MOTHER TAUGHT ME
with CHRISTOPHER DUIGAN (piano)
Christopher Duigan turns his hand to a light-hearted selection of charming popular classics in 'Songs My Mother Taught Me'. Duigan has entertained local audiences with numerous performances of beautiful piano music from the classical and popular repertoire.
With an emphasis on elegance, charm and grace, this selection of music evokes a bygone world of nostalgic classics, often associated with salon music and gatherings at the family piano. The programme features a highly appealing selection of popular melodies. Included here are ‘Beethoven’s 'Minuet in G', Brahms’s 'Waltz in A-flat', Dvorak's ‘Humoresque', Rubenstein's 'Melody in F' and 'The Maiden's Prayer'. The popular evergreens 'Parade of the Tin Soldier’, 'Rustle of Spring’ and 'The Teddy Bear's Picnic' bring this delightful selection to a jaunty close.
