NEW CLASSICAL CONCERT SERIES IN BALLITO

An exciting development is  coming the  way lovers classical music resident on the Dolphin Coast with the launch of a new classical concert series  of monthly concerts in Ballito.  Already established  as a calendar favorite at the end of each month in Kzn Midlands,  from  Howick through Pietermaritzburg,  to  Kloof  and  to the coast in Durban and now in Ballito, is Christopher Duigan and  his monthly Music Revival performances.  Presented and directed by leading South African  pianist and Steinway Artist,  Christopher Duigan, these concerts have won massive public acclaim. The concerts  feature Duigan at the piano along with a host of local and international guest artists.

Music Revival, which Duigan  established in October 1997, has grown from a series of small intimate concerts to a regularly presented series of more than 100 concerts annually staged across KZN, in Johannesburg and Pretoria, in  Franschhoek in the Cape Winelands, and Cape Town.  These concerts range from home soirees to major festivals and symphony concerts. 

In Ballito Music Revival will  present  a monthly concert of  classical  music concerts by the cream of South Africa concert artists of the world's great classical repertoire. The content offers a 'light to medium' classic experience with the artists  introducing  the music they are about to play, offering personal insight  as well as anecdotal and historical background to the music.  The opening concert will take place at at  Grace Hall at Ashton International College on Thursday  21 September starting 7:00 pm.

For this opening concert of the MUSIC REVIAL Concert Series in Ballito,  pianist Christopher Duigan plays an exhilarating solo piano  programme of classical piano masterpieces; his favorite classical piano masterpieces that are "uplifting and boldly positive" and  have formed a major part of his repertoire in numerous performances over the past 20 years.  Principal works include  George Frederic Handel's Chaconne  and Ludwig van Beethoven’s radiant  “Waldstein" Sonata op 53. The 'Waldstein' is one of Beethoven's most iconic and revered compositions. The second part of the programme features music by Claude Debussy  "Reflets dans l'eau" (Reflections in the water) and music by Franz Liszt. The programme ends with the "Heroic" Polonaise in A-flat Op 53 by Frederic Chopin. The last work said to be one of the composer’s boldest compositions giving voice to a nation's cry for freedom following the Russian invasion of Poland of 1831.

Widely regarded as one of South Africa's leading concert pianists Duigan has been recognized as a 'South African piano icon' and 'national musical treasure' (Classic Feel June 2009). He has performed extensively with all leading South African orchestras in a repertoire of more than 25 concerti. In recital he has developed a popular following through his innovative presentation and programming of a broad and all-inclusive taste in music.
