JÉRÔME PERNOO & JÉRÔME DUCROS (article first published : 2003-03-18)

March 18 sees the popular return of two the international circuit’s finest soloists, the French cellist Jérôme Pernoo and his compatriot and regular partner, pianist Jérôme Ducros. They will appear under the auspices of Durban’s Friends of Music Association at the Durban Jewish Club in Old Fort Road on March 18 at 19h45.

The celebrated duo, who also lead successful solo careers independently of each other, have charmed global audiences with their superb music-making, not least here in Durban most recently two years ago.

Their programme will spotlight three highly contrasting sonatas for cello and piano by Mendelssohn, Poulenc and Rachmaninov, and it is safe to predict they will offer local audiences another sampling of chamber music-making at its seldom-heard best.

The duo’s special musical magic is characterized by razor-sharp, often humorous interpretive insight and wide-ranging stylistic acumen, married to highly sophisticated technical resources and an endearing ability to communicate with each other and with their audience at the same time.

The Pernoo/Ducros 2003 South African concert tour is presented in association with IFAS (the French Institute of South Africa) and the French Foreign Ministry.

Book through Computicket (083 915 8000). Tickets R60 (R50 Friends of Music members and R15 students). To subscribe to Durban’s Friends of Music Association (annual membership costs R25) call 031 202 7822.
