Top SA artists for Nederburg chamber music finaleCPR Communications
Two of the country’s most celebrated classical artists will be featured at the final recital of the 2012 Nederburg Concert Series on October 28.
Scintillating soprano, Zanne Stapelberg, and renowned pianist, François du Toit, will entertain guests with a versatile repertoire. Accompanied by Du Toit, Stapelberg will serenade the audience with sultry French chansons and fiery Spanish songs.
Music by Debussy, Ravel, Liszt and Berlioz will be interspersed with popular classics by Granados and Montsalvage, as well as the passionate Milonga from Astor Piazolla's tango opera, Maria de Buenos Aires. Du Toit, will also conjure up some musical solo surprises.
Considered one of South Africa’s leading sopranos, Stapelberg was named the 2008 Standard Bank Young Artist for Music, one of the country’s most prestigious art awards. A celebrated soloist, she will make her appearance at Nederburg fresh from a stint at the Sun City Superbowl where she will be among other major local artists headlining at the annual Huisgenoot Skouspel.
Based at UCT’s SA College of Music where he is Associate Professor of Piano, Du Toit is acknowledged as one of South Africa’s finest pianists, chamber musicians and music educators. An acclaimed concerto soloist and a sought-after accompanist, he is also a highly respected adjudicator at the various national music competitions.
