CLOSE ENCOUNTERS (article first published : 2000-05-20)

The KZN Philharmonic has introduced a new programme titled the Encounter Series, sponsored by the SEM Charitable Trust London. This exciting new series to be presented at the NSA Gallery at 166 Bulwer Road complements KZN Philharmonic’s orchestral concerts and features select players in close-up encounters with music of a more intimate nature. The inaugural programme which took place in April was highly successful and well-attended.

African Encounters, the second recital in this year’s three-programme series to be presented on August 12, will scan some fascinating new territory while providing a platform for an eclectic blend of compositions. These include Musa Nkuna’s String Quartet No 1, Bongani Ndodane’s String Quartet and the Concert Suite for Two Violins, Viola and Piano from Darius Milhaud’s The Creation of the World.

Eastern Encounters, the third programme in the series, takes place on December 2. This will feature an enticing mix repertoire, including Borodin’s String Quartet No 2; two Indian works for singer, tabla, citar, performed by Patrick Ngcobo and his ensemble, and two original works for singer, tabla, violin, sitar and flute, written by Hristo Kardjiev.

Encounter recitals begin at 19h00. Tickets R25 (R15 students on presentation of student cards) available at the door.
