Christopher Duigan will be playing two concerts at the Hilton Arts Festival, which runs from September 15 to 17 at Hilton College.
First up is an exhilarating programme of his favourite classical piano masterpieces at 10 am on Saturday, September 16 in the Chapel.
These uplifting and positive compositions have formed a major part of his repertoire over the past 20 years under the banner of Music Revival.
Established in October 1997, Music Revival has grown from a series of small intimate concerts to a highly regarded series of more than 100 concerts presented across South Africa.
The programme will include George Frederic Handel’s Chaconne in G HWV 435, Ludwig van Beethoven’s exhilarating “Waldstein” Sonata op 53, music by Claude Debussy “Reflets dans l’eau” (Reflections in the water) and the “Heroic” Polonaise in A-flat Op 53 by Frederic Chopin. Tickets are R150.
Duigan returns to the Chapel at 11.30 am on Sunday, September 17 for Songs My Mother Taught Me.
For this concert he turns his hand to a selection of light classics that evokes a bygone world of nostalgia, often associated with salon music and evenings round the family piano.
The programme will include Beethoven’s ‘Minuet in G’, Brahms’s ‘Waltz in A-flat’, Dvorak’s ‘Humoresque’, Rubenstein’s ‘Melody in F’ and ‘The Maiden’s Prayer’. Tickets are R150.
