Hauntingly beautiful music for Tonight’s KZNPO concert
KZNPO’s 2018 Spring Season
Durban City Hall: 1 – 22 November
This Thursday evening, Durban music lovers can enjoy one of the most hauntingly beautiful, breathtakingly melancholic pieces of music in the classical music repertoire: Samuel Barber’s Adagio for Strings, a piece often used as a sound-track in war movies, described as “full of pathos which rarely leaves a dry eye”. This is appropriate music to perform as the world honours the centenary of the First World War.
Pictured at the WW1 ward graves in Stellawood Cemetery is Japanese master conductor, Yasuo Shinozaki, who will conduct the KZN Philharmonic Orchestra for its third programme of the season this Thursday, 15 November in Durban City Hall which includes Mendelssohn’s rarely heard Fair Melusina Overture, and Robert Schumann’s ‘Spring Symphony’. The featured piece in this week’s concert is Carl Maria von Weber’s Clarinet Concerto No 1 in F minor performed by South African born, Robert Pickup, Principal Clarinetist of the Philharmonia Zurich Orchestra. Pictured with Maestro is first violin player Stella Benbooi
