RUSTLE OF SPRING (article first published : 2002-10-11)

Well known South African pianist Andrew Warburton has chosen a selection of nostalgic pieces for his performance at the Visitors' Complex, Durban Botanic Gardens on October 20 at 14h30. He will play Mozart's Piano Sonata in B flat K333, five waltzes by Chopin, and Beethoven's much-loved Piano Sonata in C minor Op.13 - "Pathetique". Also included are pieces by two Scandinavian composers - Sinding's Rustle of Spring and Grieg's Nocturne, Butterflies and Wedding Day at Troldhaugen.

A wide variety of themes will be explored, from the drama of Beethoven to the tuneful melodies by Chopin, reminiscent of the salons of Paris in the 19th Century, and the soulful strains of Grieg.

Two young student flautists will participate in the afternoon's programme.

Andrew completed his degree in 1985 at the University of Natal under Isabella Stengel. Since then he has pursued a diverse career as soloist, accompanist and chamber musician throughout South Africa, and has performed in the presence of Queen Elizabeth and Prince Charles. He has performed 13 concertos with South African orchestras, including the notoriously difficult Samuel Barber Concerto.

In January last he was invited to be an official accompanist at the UNISA International String Competition in Pretoria. This led to an invitation to partner internationally renowned cellist Leslie Parnas for a series of three recitals in Johannesburg.

Early booking is essential as there is limited seating. Tickets R45 (R30 senior citizens, students and Friends of the Botanic Gardens) available from the InfoCentre in the Botanic Gardens on 031 309-1170.
