Final concert in the KZN Philharmonic Winter Season


VIOLINIST Joanna Frankel will be the soloist in the final concert of KwaZulu-Natal Philharmonic Orchestra’s World Symphony Series winter season in the Durban City Hall at 7.30 pm on June 25.
The concert, titled, A Virtuosic Finale!, will be conducted by Carlos Izcaray.
It opens with Claude Debussy’s symphonic poem Prelude to The Afternoon of a Faun. The work, based on the poem by Stéphane Mallarmé, tells the story of a faun waking up in a dreamlike state to find fairies and nymphs as the morning progresses.
Music lovers can also look forward to 38th Symphony, “Prague”, by Wolfgang Amadeus Mozart.
Frankel, the concertmaster of the KZN Philharmonic, will perform Shostakovich’s Violin Concerto No. 1, a mammoth work fraught with Soviet expression, themes and virtuosity.
Joanna Frankel is the soloist with the KZN Philharmonic on June 25 in the Durban City Hall.
