Christopher Duigan plays selection of classical piano works to open new concert season in Pietermaritzburg.

Classical Piano is the title of a concert to be presented by Christopher Duigan and his Pietermaritzburg-based Music Revival organisation to open the new summer season of concerts.

Christopher Duigan will play a selection of classical piano works including Beethoven's Sonata in E flat op 27 no 1, companion to the more famous Moonlight Sonata. Also on the programme are Debussy's Arabesque No 1 and La Plus que lente, a beguiling café waltz; Chopin’s popular Waltz in E-flat and Liszt's Les Jeux d'Eaux à la Villa d'Este (The Fountains of the Villa d'Este).

Full of popular appeal and easy going charm, this programme will be presented later this month at The Franschhoek La Motte Classic Music Festival of which Christopher Duigan is the Musical Director.

There are two performances of Classical Piano: October 23 at 19h30 and October 25 at 15h30 at 35 MONTGOMERY DRIVE, Athlone, Pietermaritzburg. Tickets R80 includes wine and coffee. Booking is essential through Music Revival on e-mail: or 033 342 3051. For more information visit
