Baxter Concert Hall Saturday, April 24, at 11 am

The Cape Town Concert Series is presenting musicians of the Cape Town Philharmonic Orchestra in The Other Side, the first of a series of live concerts in which the CPO musicians show another facet of the musical personalities.

“The CPO and CTSC have worked closely together for more than 60 years, sharing artists” says Louise Howlett, manager of the Cape Town Concert Series.

“What better way for the CTSC to begin resuming its live concerts than with the musicians of the CPO, all of whom are dying to perform in front of an audience. Several of the works were included in the CPO’s Symphony Masterpieces in Miniature, in which arrangements of symphonic works were performed in hybrid concerts at Erin Hall. This is your change to relive those concerts or to experience them for the first time.”

On the programme are the Shostakovich Chamber Symphony (Op 110 b) Timpani with guest leader Farida Bacharova; the Mozart Serenade for Winds in E flat (Octet) K375, which was nominated for a Fiesta award; Three Duets for Violin and Viola with Samantha Durrant and Maja van Dyk (an arrangement of Wieniawski Études-Caprices Op. 18, No 1; Arthur Feder’s Remembrance on the Bridge and Libertango by Astor Piazzolla), and a Divertimento by Mozart and Battle Suite by Samuel Scheidt, both arranged for brass by the CPO Brass Quintet.

The musicians will be happy to take questions after the concert.

To remain within Covid restrictions, only 80 seats will be sold and all Covid protocols will be in place. There will be no interval in the 70 min concert and it is likely that no refreshments will be sold.
