KZNPO SYMPHONY SEASON (article first published : 2006-09-25)

October 5: Rich Counterpoint conducted by Victor Yampolsky features soloists Gerhard Geist, Andrew Warburton and Liesl-Maret Jacobs performing the Mozart Concerto for Three Pianos, No 7 in F major. The grand pianos take centre stage for a programme featuring two delightful works performed by these applauded South African soloists. Mozart's Serenade No 9 "Posthorn" in D major alternating between festive and melancholic, yet ultimately exhilarating, sets the tone for the evening. The other item on the programme is Saint-SaŽnsí Carnival of the Animals.

October 12: Anguish and Hope. The finely orchestrated score of Saint-SaŽns' Cello Concerto No 1 in A minor, will give full voice to the cello of accomplished South African cellist, Peter Martens. The concert, led by popular American conductor Victor Yampolsky, closes with Shostakovich's intractably mocking and powerful Ninth Symphony. Also on the programme is the Honegger Symphony No 2.

October 19: Soaring Lyricism. Conducted by Lykele Temmingh, pianist Carlo Guaitoli will perform Mozart's refreshing Piano Concerto No 12 in A major. Praised for his "clarity of texture" and "pianism rich in quality and with beautiful phrasing" Guaitoli is a favourite of Durban concert audiences. Also on the programme are Chopinís Andante Spianato and Grande Polonaise with Brahms's bright Symphony No 2 in D major bringing the evening to a joyful close.

October 26: Gift of Melody. Under the baton of eminent conductor En Shao, the KZNPO's principal oboe, Clare Welfare, performs Vaughan Williams's superb Oboe Concerto. This pastoral sounding work allows the soloist to use the lyrical sound of the instrument to evoke the spirit of the countryside. Also on the programme are Vaughan Williamsí The Wasps Overture and Griegís Peer Gynt: Suites No. 1 & 2.

Pre-concert lectures are held by Friends of Music in the Royal Hotel at 18h15.These will feature Victor Yampolsky (October 5 and 12); Dr Ted Pillay (October 19), and Stavros Anthias (October 26).

Booking for concerts and lectures at Computicket. More information from the KZNPO offices on 031 369 9453.
