Christopher Duigan to present concert classics in Kloof

Well known Pianist Christopher Duigan, one of KZN’s most prolific classical artists, will present a programme of classical masterpieces at St Agnes Church, Kloof on Wednesday October 17 at 7.30pm. The performance will carefully balances style, colour and mood, with the programme set to include sonatas by Scarlatti, the ‘Sonata Pathetique op 13’ by Ludwig van Beethoven, impromptus by Franz Schubert, and selections from Claude Debussy’s ‘Images’, together with music by South American Alberto Ginastera.

Widely regarded as one of South Africa’s leading concert pianists, Duigan has established an enviable reputation as one of South Africa’s busiest concert performers. Duigan is a Steinway Artist and will be playing a Steinway Grand Piano Model ‘B’ for this performance.

Based in KZN Midlands for the last 16 years, Duigan has furthered his career in South Africa on traditional concert platforms and has been hailed as a ‘South Africa piano icon’ (Classic Feel). In addition he has experimented with a unique approach to programming and performance strategy that seeks to break boundaries between various genres, particularly of piano music, and to grow new audiences. His work, under the banner Music Revival, has grown to encompass a widely recognized ‘brand’ that now presents over 80 performances annually ranging from a number of soirées, both in KZN and further afield, to major performance by the KZN Philharmonic Orchestra, the Concert Series at the Hilton Art Festival and the Classic Music Festival in Franschhoek.
