The CPO is back live at the City Hall
The Cape Town Philharmonic Orchestra has three concerts – with big repertoire and amazing soloists – in its live Summer Festival beginning on January 20.
All three concerts are conducted by principal guest conductor Bernhard Gueller, and feature violinist David Juritz (violin) in the Violin Concert No. 5 in A “Turkish” by Mozart and Zorada Temmingh (organ) in the Organ Symphony by Saint-Saȅns.
The concert, on January 20, will begin with a performance of Nimrod from Elgar’s Enigma Variations to honour those who have lost their lives during the pandemic.
The second concert, on January 27, features marimba specialist Magdalena de Vries in Allan Stephenson’s Toccata Exotica (1984) for marimba and orchestra. Rachmaninov’s Second Symphony with expanded strings section will complete the programme.
The third concert on February 18, features Suzanne Martens (violin); Petrus Coetzee (viola) in the Sinfonia concertante in E flat by Mozart, with Nielson’s Symphony No. 2, Op. 16 “The Four Temperaments” as the main work.
