DUIGAN AND WARBURTON (article first published : 2004-02-22)

For the second in Music Revival’s series of concerts of piano ensemble music, Christopher Duigan is joined by fellow concert pianist Andrew Warburton. They perform one of the most beautiful and profoundly moving of the four-hand or piano duet repertoire, the “crowning glory” of Schubert's extensive output for the combination, the Fantasy in F minor. This atmospheric, emotional and rather dark-hued piece of music also features one of the most haunting melodies ever penned.

Schubert composed most of his four-hand music to entertain his musical friends who gathered at Viennese homes for evenings that became known as “Schubertiads”.

In this programme Christopher and Andrew include Schubert's most widely-recognised composition, March Militaire. Completing the 70-minute programme are the jaunty and quirky Jamaican Rumba from Arthur Benjamin and La Nuit ...l’amour from Rachmaninoff's Two Piano Suite No.1 (Fantasie-Tableaux) - a voluptuous and passionate canvas for two virtuoso pianists.

The concert takes place on February 25 at 19h30 at 35 Montgomery Drive, Athlone, Pietermaritzburg.

Tickets R50 include fruit juice plus tea/coffee and shortbread. Booking is essential through Christopher on 033 342 3051 or e-mail chris@musicrevival.co.za
