Recent Highlights


Recent Highlights


August 2019
in August Christopher Duigan starts the month with the second in the series of concerts at Hilton College playing once again, with the Kerimov Trio and friends, Schubert’s Trout Quintet. This is also featured in a special Women’s Day morning concert in Musgrave Rd, Durban. Here is a recent review extract from their performance in Durban:

In the KZNPO Ensemble’s performance of this work, the pianist’s touch was highly cultivated and he is to be commended on his excellent octave work at speed in the right hand, which must certainly have been a challenge throughout much of the work. While it can be said that each instrumentalist was truly independent and had an autonomous “voice”, as an ensemble, they merged well together. It was clear that there was very good communication between the cellist and violinist couple and also between the piano and violin in the relevant passages. There was a vivaciousness to the playing, particularly on the trills and running scale passages, which brought to life the image of a trout swimming freely in a pond. In general, the ensemble displayed a pleasing understatedness. —- ArtSmart REVIEW June 2019

Later in the month Christopher will be featured, and also playing a producing role, assisting soprano Nozuko Teto stage a concert at the Friends of Music Durban. This will also feature Federico Freschi (baritone). Freschi, who has been a long time supporter and featured artist in Music Revival’s concerts will be leaving South Africa next month to take up an academic position inNew Zealand. He will also appear in the Tatham Art Gallery in a farewell concert that same morning, Sunday 18 August.

At the end of the month Christopher Duigan will be joined by internationally acclaimed Junnan Sun on clarinet to play a selection of varied and popular classics for the monthly KZN Tour of concerts.

JUNE 2019
In June, apart from the launch of new concert series at Hilton College and Christ Church Constantia ( in ‘Magnificent Chopin’ - book here ), Christopher will be featured with the Kerimov Trio (who make a welcome return) in Schubert’s Trout Quintet. This includes a performance presented at The Friends of Music at the Jewish Centre in Durban.

MAY 2019

In May Christopher returns to a major project, the music of Chopin, which he has pursued over a number of years, In ‘ MAGNIFICENT CHOPIN’ he highlights the bold, virtuoso and majestic elements of the composer’s music over the elegant and atmospheric elements, often seen as typical of the composer’s music. This includes the Scherzo 3, Ballade No. 3 and selections of etudes, mazurkas, and nocturnes. The programme ends with the monumental Sonata No 3. This will be played across KZN as well as new venues which will be included every second month, at Hilton College and also in Christ Church, Constantia - Cape Town. This last venue brings about a much pursued possibility of a regular venue for Music Revival Concerts in Cape Town.

In addition Music Revival presents the with the eighth annual Royal Symphony at the Royal Show in Pietermaritzburg with the KZN Philharmonic Orchestra conducted by Kutlwano Masote and the 16th Autumn Music Weekend in Franschhoek, to coincide with the Franschhoek Literary Festival. Performers this year include Charl du Plessis, Albie van Schalkwyk (piano) and David Pinoit (cello) playing Beethoven, and Christopher playing Mostly Mozart and “Another 20 Popular Piano Solos’ at Cafe Bon Bon.


APRIL 2019

In April Christopher Duigan was joined by Aristide Du Plessis (cello) in the MUSIC REVIVAL CONCERTS Monthly KZN Tour, from Ballito to Howick. They include music by Dvorak, Schumann and Schubert’s ‘Arpeggione’ Sonata, a favourite of audiences world-wide,  in this programme. A highlight was Aristides’ passionate performance of the slow movement form the Dvorak Cello Concerto. The Ballito performance was postponed due to extreme rain and poor weather condition to 6 May,


MARCH 2019

Christopher Duigan and David Salleras performed at the Woordfees in South Africa in March 2019 as soloists with the Stellenbosch University Symphonic Orchestra (conducted by Daniel Boico), once again in Takashi Yoshimtasu’s ‘Cyberbird’ Concerto and in the duo recital programme, ‘Indigo’. These performances will be broadcast on Kyk-net Tv in the coming months. These pics below by Mark Cloete.

in addition Christopher played solo recitals of a varied repertoire at Henley on Klip, Margate Retirement Village and a new venture for Music Revival, promoted two concerts in Greyton, Western Cape. It is hoped that Music Revival will promote a small festival of concerts in Greyton later in the year.

Christopher’s mostly tour of seven concerts featured the new programme ‘Another 20 Popular Piano Solos. ‘ This programme included many familiar and popular piano melodies as well as some lesser know piece by Sibelius and Yann Tiersen. This include the first performance at a new venue for Music Revival’s monthly KZN Tour, Crawford College in Umhlanga / La Lucia.


MarkCloeteWoordfees2019Indigo3Mar2019-35.jpg

February 2019

In February Christopher presented a selection of music including piano sonatas - in D major, C minor and F major by Wolfgang Amadeus Mozart. In MOSTLY he also included sparkling and effervescent classics by Edvard Greig, Claude Debussy and a selection of Waltzes by Frederic Chopin. This programme was for the monthly KZN tour.

January 2019

Christopher started the year off with his monthly KwaZulu-Natal tour, this time with guitarist James Grace. Playing a selection of their standard repertoire collobarted and developed over many years, this programme together focussed on Spanish msuci which reflected the table of James’ latest release the Msuci for Spain Vol. 3. The tour included a solo concert for James at Highgate Wine Esatet in Lions River, KZN.


DECEMBER 2018

CHRISTOPHER DUIGAN and Spanish saxophonist DAVID SALLERAS performed in Barcelona’s Palau de la Musica (one of the world's most prestigious concert venues) with the Orquestra Simfònica del Vallès (conducted by James Ross) Saturday 1 December 2018 to great acclaim.


SEPTEMBER 2018

FRANZ LIZT RECITAL - CAPE TOWN

Our church was once again full to capacity for Christopher’s Liszt recital, everyone arriving with great expectation of a circus act on the piano, primed by several emails about the vain and super-talented composer.


There is a certain fascination with sitting comfortably in one’s chair while some poor soul sets himself an impossibly difficult task, and then slowly and surely achieves it in front of your eyes. A Liszt recital has to be experienced at least once in one’s lifetime. After all he ”invented” the recital, and had the wherewithal to compose and play the most difficult of all music for the piano.

Christopher began and opened his programme with a Hungarian Rhapsody. These pieces proved so popular, he also played the Rhapsody No 6  as an encore.

I watched Chris play ripple after ripple of impossibly difficult passages so accurately,  with the lightest possible touch.  Spidery fingers skimmed the keys in a blur, daring the notes to not even speak. He has a superb sense of texture management, an assessment of which voice is important at any one time. This went on piece after piece, with huge dramatic moments where the huge piano shook violently, contrasting with whispered devotional passages when nobody dared breathe. Each piece seemed to involve more hands that crossed each other, more leaps from one note to the other. Chris played us the Liszt “Big Four”, tossing off La Campanella in the course of things. The piece has the reputation of being the most technically difficult work for the piano ever written.


Over the course of the afternoon my fascination turned to wonder. It was the appreciation of the outpouring of what Liszt contained within him; the imagination, the impossible virtuosity, the lavishness of the Romantic movement. Here in front of us was an artist actually realising that impossible music, rising to the utmost challenge of his musical ability to provide this for us.

Everyone there felt they had all been witness to an extraordinary achievement. So many people made compliments on their way out, and they will come back for more.
Chris said drily afterwards when I congratulated him: “It took 40 years of practising.”

CONCERT DETAILS 2016

Major engagements  for 2016 for Christopher  included recitals for Mandela Day in Mexico City in July (presented by the South African Embassy - Watch the video of a snippet with Morgan Symanski (guitar)  here) and was soloist in the Beethoven Concerto No 3 with the KZN Philharmonic Orchestra on tour in KZN.

A CD 'The Music of Chopin'  Chopin's music  was released in November 2016.  See the CDs  page for more.  The Cd launch in March 2017  in Cape Town received a massive response and followed on all-Chopin performances at Brooklyn Theatre - Pretoria in June,  at the St Andrews Concert Series - Cape Town in August and at the Hilton Festival in September, plus performances in Durban, Hermanus, and Franschhoek in 2016. See below for pics.

MARCH 2017
CHOPIN RECITAL Constantia, Cape Town  

It was an extraordinary sight, watching people ... desperately wanting to get a ticket before the concert started! We were hard pressed to find everybody a seat.

From the first few notes Christopher played, I knew it would be a wonderful concert and that once again he would not disappoint. He started with Chopin’s E flat Nocturne, and played so quietly, sensitively and compellingly no one dared breathe. Then he proceeded to play all those pieces everyone knows so well, the ones they had come to hear: to my mind completely faultlessly, with perfect rippling passages in the high register, singing through the left hand and being so incredibly present throughout the entire recital that there seemed never a dull or boring moment. He was a credit to his teacher, the late Lamar Crowson, who has passed on gifts of imaginative playing and complete technical mastery over this demanding music, and yet Christopher brings his own insights and irreproachable musicality. It was a deeply satisfying concert to everyone there, richly deserving of the standing ovation at the end.

David Salleras and Christopher Duigan tour 2018


Spain tour with GIOrquestra Tour & David Salleras - April 2017 - INDIGO in rehearsal (below)

Since his first visit in October 2012, David Salleras has been collaborating on a project of concerts and recorded albums with Christopher Duigan. Salleras, who lives in Barcelona, Spain has attracted international attention through his fluency in a variety of musical styles. His innovative compositions, which incorporate traditional flamenco idioms with contemporary and avant-garde performing techniques, are performed by saxophonists worldwide.

Duigan, meanwhile, is widely regarded as one of South Africa’s leading concert pianists has developed a popular following through his innovative Music Revival concerts. For this series, the two musicians will perform works from the traditional saxophone repertoire by Jules Demersseman, JS Bach, Darius Milahaud’s Scaramouche and music from Spanish composer/saxophonist by Pedro Itturalde. Itturalde’s Suite Hellenique traditionally offers pianist and saxophonist plenty of opportunity to explore a wide range of dynamic interplay through a variety of musical styles.

Also on the programme will be Salleras and Duigan’s own creative arrangements of music by Astor Piazzolla, Salleras’ own solo Caprices, and Duigan’s compositions from the albums  Indigo and Midnight Blue.

BIOGRAPHY

Widely regarded as one of South Africa's leading concert pianists, CHRISTOPHER 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 works for piano and orchestra. In recital he has developed a popular following through his innovative presentation and programming of a broad and eclectic taste in music. Recent highlights include more than 20 performances of an all-Chopin programme following a visit to Warsaw, Poland in 2015.

Major performances with orchestra include Rachmaninoff Concerto No. 2 (Cape Philharmonic Orchestra- Cape Town City Hall), Liszt Piano Concerto No. 1 (Johannesburg Philharmonic Orchestra - Linder Auditorium) and Gershwin's Rhapsody in Blue and Yoshimatsu's 'Cyberbird' for solo saxophone, piano and percussion (KZN Philharmonic Orchestra  - Durban City Hall). 

Major recital engagements include those at the Brooklyn Theatre in Pretoria, Casa Labia in Cape Town,  Steinway Hall in London, in Mexico City and at the National Arts Festival (Grahamstown) and Hilton Arts Festival.  

Christopher Duigan has developed large following in South Africa through the broadcast of his recordings which are frequently aired on ClassicFM (Johannesburg)  and Fine Music Radio (Cape Town). 

In 2010 he became one of only six pianists in South African history to be invited to be a 'Steinway Artist', joining an exclusive company of renowned international musicians.  

Based in the KwaZulu-Natal Midlands he is committed to promoting concert performance, both his own and those of others, locally and further afield. As producer and impresario he is the director of the widely acclaimed MUSIC REVIVAL which he established in 1997. Major projects now include more than 100 concerts annually,  including the Marriott Classic Music Festival  in Franschhoek and a series of performances by the KwaZulu-Natal Philharmonic Orchestra in KZN. 

Christopher Duigan began piano studies with Anette Kerkovius in Pietermaritzburg at the age of seven. He continued his  studies at the University of Natal with Italian concert pianist Isabella Stengel from age 14, graduating with a B.Mus (cum laude).  Christopher furthered his studies at the University of Cape Town with Lamar Crowson and Albie van Schalkwyk, graduating with an M Mus (Performance) in 1994, and later at the Royal Northern College of Music (RNCM) in Manchester with Brazilian virtuoso Arnaldo Cohen. At the RNCM he was awarded the Professional Performer's Diploma (PPRNCM) and won first prize in the prestigious RNCM Recital Prize for Pianists. In addition he received the UNISA Overseas Scholarship Competition (1994), Crossly/Kramer Scholarships for International Study from UCT, 1st prize and Gold Medal in the Adolph Hallis Piano Competition (1996), awards for the best South African pianist in the UNISA International Piano Competition (1996), Gold Medal in the Pan-African Concours de Musique,  and the Cape Town Symphony's prestigious Joseph Lan Award for his performance of the Bartok Piano Concerto No 3 (1994). He has participated in master classes at Dartington Summer School with Stephen Kovacevich and at the Mozarteum, Salzburg. 

In recent years he has established a highly successful and productive collaboration with Spanish virtuoso saxophonist David Salleras that has resulted in two  albums recordings of his own original music: INDIGO (2015) and MIDNIGHT BLUE (2016).   Numerous national tours of South Africa followed and a tour of six concerts with GIO Orchestra in Spain took place in April 2016 and again March 2017.  These featured Duigan's own music from the albums conceived for solo saxophone and piano with the orchestra.

In December 2018 Salleras and Duigan were soloists with the Orquestra des Valles at the Palau de la Musica, Barcelona, one of the world’s most prestigious concert venues.
