Spring on a high note

Hong Kong born conductor Perry So opens the season on 23 August.

THE KwaZulu-Natal Philharmonic Orchestra opens its 2018 Early Spring Season at the Durban City Hall on Thursdays between 23 August and 13 September at 7.30pm.

The gifted Hong Kong born conductor Perry So takes his bow on the podium to open the season on 23 August with a programme that includes Mozart’s colourful Il Seraglio Overture and his iconic Symphony No 40 in G minor. The Italian virtuoso Alessandro Taverna is the soloist in Chopin’s Piano Concerto No 1 in E minor in the second half of the programme.

Perry So returns for the second programme on 30 August. This opens with the delightfully off-beat L’ile de Tulipatan Overture by Jacques Offenbach. The prizewinning young German violinist Alissa Margulis is the soloist in Mendelssohn’s much-loved E-minor Violin Concerto and the evening ends with Brahms’s monumental Symphony No 1.

The Russian maestro Daniel Raiskin makes a welcome return to the podium on 6 September to conduct a richly eclectic programme.

The Early Spring Season ends traditionally on 13 September with the KZN Philharmonic’s Resident Conductor Lykele Temmingh on the podium for the annual National Youth Concerto Festival, which showcases young South African talent who perform with seasoned professionals.
