BORIS KERIMOV (article first published : 2002-03-7)

Over the past two or three years, concert goers in KwaZulu-Natal have felt the presence of a strong musical talent occupying the front desk of the KZN Philharmonic's cello section, in the person of Russian-born Boris Kerimov.

Besides the considerable impact he has made as a key member of the orchestra, Kerimov has built up a large following of admirers, who enjoy his appearances in Durban and Pietermaritzburg as a soloist and chamber musician.

The good news is that more lies ahead from this gifted player over the coming week and months.

Kerimov makes his local big-stage debut as a soloist with the KZN Philharmonic this Thursday (March 7) in the Durban City Hall, performing Boccherini's Cello Concerto No 2 in D Major. He will appear with conductor David Tidboald in a programme that includes Haydn's Symphony NO 49 in F minor “La Passione” and the Symphony No 2 by Brahms. To book for this concert, which begins at 19h30, call 031 369-9404 or email kznposub@iafrica.com.

Wearing his chamber music hat, Kerimov unites with his wife, the virtuoso violinist Elena Kerimova, and pianist Christopher Duigan, in a new mini-series of three recitals in the Polo Lounge at the Durban Hilton, offering “previews” of their forthcoming new Beethoven series later this year to mark the 175th anniversary of Beethoven's death in 1827.

On March 11 the group will play Beethoven's magnificent Archduke Trio and Rachmaninov's Trio Elegiaque. Their second recital on April 2 features Kerimov and Duigan in Beethoven's Cello Sonata Op 102 No 1 alongside the Shostakovich Cello Sonata.

Elena Kerimova and Duigan appear in the third programme on April 29 for performances of Beethoven's Violin Sonata Op.24 “Spring” and Cesar Franck's Violin Sonata. These three Durban Hilton programmes will each last approximately 90 mins including interval, and will begin at 19h30.

A full cash bar will be available, and light meals and buffet on the Rainbow Terrace will be available before or after each event. Secure parking underground. Booking is essential. Mail chris@musicrevival.co.za or call Music Revival on 033 342 3051.
