Charl du Plessis Trio – Baroqueswing Vol. II
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.”
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
