BACH TO BOCELLI (article first published : 2003-11-3)

Three Durban artists: soprano Stacey Almond, KZNPO violinist Beatrice Lauenberg and pianist-conductor Gerhard Geist team up for a special Classics by Candlelight concert, aptly labled From Bach to Bocelli by Candlelight.

The programme includes a variation of works and styles, including a version of Jesu Joy of Man's Desiring for violin and voice, with a jazzed-up section in the style of Stephan Grapelli. Also featured are Air on a G String; Mozart's L'amero Costante aria for voice and violin; a violin solo by French composerJ M Leclair.; violin solo Dance of the Blessed Spirits by Gluck from Orfeo and Eurydice; Sonatina by Bartok and a little medley of Nessun Dorma and Oh my Beloved Father a la Vanessa Mae style for violin.

Handel’s Piangero la sorte mia and his Violin Sonata No. 4 will also be part of the programme. The well known aria The Prayer as well as Morricane’s You’re still You will give the concert a more contemporary colour.

In these technological days, with the musicians resplendent in full Baroque costume, audiences at the Classics by Candlelight concerts will be transported into a long-forgotten era. The programme promises to be amusing and informative.

From Bach to Bocelli by Candlelight takes place on November 11 at 19h30 at the Maranatha Christian Reformed Church, 17 Willowvale Road, Glenwood. Bookings on 031 465 9216 or 031 205 3651.
