MOZART CELEBRATION! (article first published : 2004-10-5)

The Pietermaritzburg-based Music Revival celebrates its seventh birthday with a symphony concert by the KwaZulu-Natal Philharmonic Orchestra at Hilton College.

Symphony concerts are now a rare occasion in the region and Music Revival aims to present something special, imitating a little of the style of grand public concert that might have been presented by Mozart himself.

The evening features an array of sections from various works such as the Overture and arias from the opera Cosi fan Tutte with the cast of the UKZN Opera School’s recent acclaimed production, movements from a symphony, a piano concerto, a violin concerto and other occasional works.

The piano soloist is Christopher Duigan in the Concerto in F major K. 459, one of Mozart's own preferred works for royal performances. Darragh Morgan performs the Violin Concerto No 1 and will lead the orchestra (without conductor) as Mozart would have done.

Of course the real star of the show is the orchestra itself - the only full-time professional orchestra in Africa.

The concert takes place at Hilton College on October 16 at 19h30. Tickets R50. Bookings and more information on 033 383 0126.
