Charl du Plessis Trio – Baroqueswing Vol. II

1 April 2017 at 8pm

Charl du Plessis Trio return to Prince Albert’s Showroom Theatre for the release of their much-anticipated new album by Swiss record label Claves – Baroqueswing Vol. 2. This performance promises a vibrant crossover of jazz and Baroque music that is sure to convince even the most stern music lover. Favourites like Jesu Joy of Man’s Desiring, the famous Bach Toccata & Fugue in d minor as well as Vivaldi’s Four Seasons will delight audiences. Baroqueswing Vol. 2 experiments with form, rhythm, and virtuoso arrangements of timeless music, bringing a refreshing energy to the stage. The Swiss press hailed the Trio’s performance as: “famous themes from the Baroque observed through a jazz lens – he did this with perfection. Du Plessis proves himself here but in his rhythmically charged performance as a virtuoso pianist of big style” – Walliser Bote “Oddly enough, the seams among the two centuries were loosely sewn; one genre swung into the other. Rocking shoulders and tapping feet, the audience was visibly moved. But there was something even more exciting that befell us” – Bachtrack Charl du Plessis says of Baroqueswing Vol. 2: “I wanted to adhere to the sophisticated method of musical treatment where the inherent rhythmic identity of the original score, as well as the stylistic performance principles receive the utmost respect from the performers. This experience is defined by the energy of the audience and the moment of musical creation propels Hugo to be the sensitive and complimentary drummer with his unique dynamic timbres. Furthermore, it inspires Werner to utilise the acoustics and form the basis of the harmonic landscape for the performance. Finally, the Steinway becomes my voice as I try to extemporise on the original Baroque content in a new and personal way.”

DECA – a Violin & Guitar Duo

8 April 2017 at 8pm

New music group, DECA’s, striking instrumental arrangements conquered the hearts of fans, across the country, from the very start. Their fresh, modern and charming interpretation of crowd favourites is the key ingredient behind their instant success and resonates with audiences of all ages.

Herman Steyn (on the violin) and Douw Steyn (on the guitar) are veterans in the music industry. Both artists are passionate about music and enjoy a variety of genres. DECA’s debut album is refreshingly different and hopefully a good indication of the musical masterpieces that can be expected of them in the future.

Die Man Jesus

15 April 2017 at 8pm

Die solostuk DIE MAN JESUS is tans op ’n landwye toer na afloop van die sukses wat die produksie by die Klein-Karoo Nasionale Kunstefees behaal het.  Gehore was dit eens dat dit ‘n hoogtepunt was.
Die bekroonde akteur André Lombard betree die verhoog in die solostuk, as ’n verskeidenheid van karakters wat die aanloop tot Jesus se kruisiging belig. Vanaf Jerusalem en Galilea, na Golgota, word Jesus se verhaal vertel uit die oogpunte van die wat hom geken het.
Van die karakters soos Jesus se moeder Maria, Simon Petrus, Judas Iskariot, Johannes die Doper, Pontius Pilatus en ander kom aan die woord, en gee hul indrukke oor watter soort mens Jesus na hul mening was.
…Bybelse geskiedenis herleef in ’n dialoog wat jy nie sou assosieer met dié teks nie.
Daarvoor lig jy jou hoed vir Charles Fourie wat die dramaturg Matthew Hurt se teks The Man Jesus vertaal het en ook die regisseur is.

Sulayman Human

6 May 2017 at 8pm

Rachmaninoff Russian Roulette  –  Sulayman Human, pianist.

Sulayman has been hailed by South Africa’s foremost classical music critic, Paul Boekkooi, as a pianist who brings out soloistic detail with melodic-architectural richness, combined with continuous lyricism, technical perfection and a comprehensive understanding of touch. His performance of the Adagio from the Concerto no.23 by Mozart was described by the same critic as a performance wherein the gravitas were acknowledged that is needed to bring forth the pathos of this music. Rachmaninoff has been a composer studied by Sulayman for years, and after performing both his famous Second and Third Piano Concerti Sulayman felt the need to return to the masterworks for solo piano by this master composer. Rachmaninoff Russian Roulette is built upon works that Rachmaninoff composed throughout the span of his life. Works that are melodically, harmonically, architecturally and, most importantly, emotionally driven. This concert will not only represent the life of this composer, but will reveal why Rachmaninoff has become one of the most celebrated and most loved composers amongst pianists and audiences. Programme: – 10 Preludes, Op.23 – Sonata no.2 in B-flat minor, Op.36 – Polka de W.R – Variations on a Theme of Corelli, Op.42 – Liebeslied

Jennifer Zamudio

27 May 2017 at 8pm

Op die verhoog is Jennifer ‘n onbeskryflike bondel energie en met haar natuurlike aanvoeling vir vermaak kry sy vinnig ‘n gehoor in die palm van haar hand. Haar spontane “weskus-humor” en gemak laat menige konsertganger skater van plesier terwyl hulle maar net nie kan stil sit in een van haar vertonings nie. Jennifer het haarself goed in die musiekbedryf gevestig as sanger, liedjieskrywer en Compére (MC), en net soos wat sy daarvan hou om musiek met lekker woema te sing, is sy self gaande oor haar ernstige emosionele ballades, wat altyd haar kenmerkende alt stem tot sy volle reg laat kom. Jennifer is “verlief op die lewe” en dit word beklemtoon in alles wat sy doen en aanpak. Haar energie is verseker aanvoelbaar en aansteeklik.

Na reeds langer as 15 jaar in die Afrikaanse Musiekbedryf geniet Jennifer Zamudio nogsteeds ‘n suksesvolle loopbaan, waarop sy baie trots is. Sy is sinoniem met styl, harde werk, sukses en energie.
