ANDREW WARBURTON RECITAL AT EXHIBITION (article first published : 2005-01-10)

Andrew Warburton, one of Durbanís leading concert pianists, will be giving two recitals at a piano exhibition to be held at the Berea Rovers Club on January 15 at 17h00 and January 16 at 15h00. He will perform a wide ranging programme of piano music to demonstrate his musical ability and the versatility of his repertoire. The recital will include Chopin Waltzes, Schubertís Impromptu in A-flat, Mozartís Sonata in B-flat K333 and works from the musicals and by Scott Joplin. The programme has something for all and promises to be varied and interesting.

Andrew Warburton has pursued a diverse musical career as soloist, accompanist and chamber musician throughout South Africa. He has performed with all the South African orchestras, encompassing a repertoire of 18 concertos, and has partnered leading soloists from abroad including Mark Drobinsky (cello) and Elizabeth Connell (soprano).

He has performed in the presence of Queen Elizabeth and Prince Charles, and further to that was invited to give three solo recitals in Germany in 1998. Since February 2003, he has been resident accompanist and vocal coach for the new Opera School and Choral Academy attached to the University of Natal. Andrew has performed for the Friends of Music on a regular basis and is also one of the main pre-concert lecturers for the KZNPO. These lectures are organised by the Friends of Music.

In addition to the recitals, Poonanís Music will host an exhibition of restored pianos imported from Japan, including upright and grand pianos. The exhibition will provide the public with an unique opportunity to see and hear over 25 different types of pianos under one roof. The exhibition runs over two days from January 15 (10h00 to 22h00) and January 16 (11h00 to 20h00).

Both the recitals and exhibition will take place at Berea Rovers Club, Jacko Jackson Drive (off NMR Ave). The Club is directly behind the ABSA Stadium. There is adequate parking and refreshments will be served.

Entrance is free to both the recitals and exhibition but provision will be made to allow members of the public to make a donation to help the victims of the Tsunami. The money will be given to the Rotary Clubs Tsunami Relief Fund.
