FOR the March instalment of the monthly Music Revival concerts, pianist Christopher Duigan turns his hand to a light-hearted selection of charming popular classics in Tales from Grandmother’s Piano Album.
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 evenings at the family piano.
The programme includes: Beethoven’s Minuet in G, Brahms’s Waltz in A-flat, Dvorak’s Humoresque, Rubenstein’s Melody in F and The Maiden’s Prayer, as well as the popular evergreens Parade of the Tin Soldier, Rustle of Spring and The Teddy Bear’s Picnic.
Duigan will be performing his beautiful piano music from the classical and popular repertoire at St Agnes’ Church, Kloof at 7.30 pm on Thursday, March 23 and at the Tatham Art Gallery in Chief Albert Luthuli Street at 11 am on Sunday, March 26.
