CONVERSATIONS WITH MY PIANO
 

Friday 6 October 7:30 pm
Casa Mexicana

Darius Brubeck and Christopher Duigan 
International  jazz pianist Darius  Brubeck can be heard in a rare offering of solo piano music. Brubeck is most often heard as the leader of the Darius Brubeck Quartet or with his brothers  playing music of their father, legendary pianist  Dave Brubeck, in Brubeck plays Brubeck.  He is joined in a musical ‘piano ping pong’ or back and forth by pianist Christopher Duigan. Duigan spontaneously plays classical and popular solos, improvisations and original material offsetting Brubeck’s
 jazz offerings in an inspired and unique gathering.  This conversational engagement  takes place with, and around, the piano.

Swing into Spring

SWING INTO SPRING with the KZN Philharmonic Orchestra and the waltzes of Johann Strauss!

 

A bouquet of beautiful music is presented to local audiences when ’Swing into Spring’ comes to Pietermaritzburg.  

Bringing to life a magnificent selection of music that celebrates and uplifts with tones of spring, new energy and rebirth, this much-anticipated concert of symphonic music will sooth many weary hearts with the music of “the waltz king” Johann Strauss II and the fresh Scandinavian moods of Edvard Grieg.  

The KwaZulu-Natal Philharmonic Orchestra performs in the Pietermaritzburg City Hall, a city renowned for its rich floral and gardening heritage, on Friday, October 13 at 7.30 pm.

Presented by Christopher Duigan’s Music Revival in association the KZN Philharmonic and sponsored by MayFord seeds, ‘Swing into Spring’ is another in the long list of highly successful productions with the renowned KZN Philharmonic Orchestra at the City Hall.

“We have chosen a selection of flowing, elegant and graceful music that will bring the audience head-long into an exuberant celebration of spring.  We also see this as a culmination of a sequence of events that involves the city’s floral heritage with 'Open Gardens' and 'Garden Show' traditionally held at this time of year,” said Music Revival’s Christopher Duigan.  

The concert includes a selection of Strauss waltzes, usually associated with that most elegant of cities, Vienna, a city also associated with its magnificent floral vistas.  This includes Johann Strauss II 'Tales from the Vienna Woods Waltz' and ‘Voices of Spring’ along with the 'Tristch Trasch’ Polka. 

Edvard Grieg’s ‘Wedding Day at Troldhaugen’, ‘Morning Mood' from 'Peer Gynt' and 'Norwegian Dances' will also be performed by the sixty-player orchestra along with Tchaikovsky’s ‘Waltz of the Flowers’, a must for any floral-themed concert.  

The grand sweep of Tchaikosvky’s music will carry through into the opening moment of his celebrated Piano Concerto No 1. It will be performed by local pianist and Steinway artist, Duigan. The work is regarded as one of the most dazzling piano compositions ever written, and renowned for its soaring opening melody. 

The KZN Philharmonic Orchestra will be conducted by Naume Rousine.

The concert also serves as the final concert in a week-long festival presented by Duigan’s Music Revival celebrating their 20th year. 

Music Revival has presented and collaborated on numerous soirees, concerts and events in the city and further afield since its official founding by Duigan in October 1997. 

As with all Music Revival concerts in the City Hall, every guest receives a complimentary souvenir programme.  The hall lighting, an integral part of the entertainment will be undertaken once again by Big Beat and complimentary drinks and eats are served at interval.  There is secure guarded parking in the City Hall precinct.

Make sure you book your tickets for ‘Swing into Spring’, which is also supported by the Msunduzi Municipality, CPW Printers, Business and Arts South Africa (BASA), Parklane SUPERSPAR, ABI and MayFord Seeds.

Tickets are R170 (R140 pensioners, R100 scholars) and R250 for premier seats.  Tickets are available at Ticketpros.co.za.
