KZN Philharmonic presents a trio of talentsKZNPO - KZN Philharmonic Orchestra
The KZN Philharmonic presents a concert themed “A Trio of Talents” at the Durban City Hall at 7.30pm on 18 October.
We open the concert with two Hungarian masterpieces and we welcome Tibor Boganyi back to the podium to conduct the music of his countrymen. The first piece of the evening is Kodály’s Dances of Galánta, followed by Liszt’s Piano Concerto No. 2 in A major, performed by Konstantin Scherbakov. Scherbakov is a highly accomplished soloist and has given solo performances in 35 countries.
In the second half of the concert, South African tenor Musa Nkuna will join soprano Estelle Kruger to present a gripping selection of arias and duets by Italian and French composers. Musa studied singing with James Conrad in Durban and with Pierre-André Blaser at the Conservatoire de Lausanne in Switzerland. Estelle is a Pretoria-born South African soprano who holds a Masters degree in opera performance from the San Francisco Conservatory of Music and from the Pretoria Technikon Opera School.
This evening of charmed and charming music is not to be missed.
The public is reminded that there will be no open rehearsal at 10am for this concert.
The spring season will continue to run until 1 November 2012, with concerts taking place every Thursday at the Durban City Hall every Thursday at 7.30pm. Pre-concert talks take place at the Playhouse Alhambra Room at 6.15 on the night of each concert.
