EASTERN DINNER AT LE DOMAIN (article first published : 2008-02-9)

Internationally-acclaimed performers Florian Schiertz (tabla) from Germany and Kalyan Muckerjee (sarod) from India will be the special guests at an Eastern dinner performance at Le Domaine’s Club de Vie on February 29.

The works will be introduced by renowned South African pianist and composer Surendran Reddy who is currently in the country adjudicating at the UNISA International Piano Competition in Pretoria.

Having graduated with a Masters degree in performance cum laude at the Rotterdam Conservatoire in the fields of tabla and north Indian classical music, Florian has given numerous concerts both as soloist and accompanist to many distinguished musicians including Pandit Budhaditya Mukherjee and Ken Zuckerman. He has given live performances in India, Germany, Holland, Belgium, Switzerland, France and South Africa and has also given many radio and television broadcasts.

Born in Calcutta, India, Kalyan Mukherjee has often been considered to be a prodigy in north Indian classical music. He has dedicated his life to sharing this thousand-year old tradition with both audiences across Europe and India and now he looks forward to doing the same in South Africa, a country which he is visiting for the first time.

The sarod is a stringed, fretless, Indian classical instrument. The tone resembles that of a classical guitar and is similar to a sitar – both instruments extremely popular in Northern India. The tabla consists of a pair of hand drums of contrasting sizes and sound.

The concert will take place in the restaurant at Le Domaine’s Club de Vie in Hillcrest where an Eastern buffet will be served from 18h30 and the performance will start at 20h00. Tickets R120 includes the cost of the buffet.

Bookings through Di Ward on 031 716 8000 to make your booking. Seating is limited.
