Pietermaritzburg pianist, Christopher Duigan, will present, Autumn Rhapsody, a programme of music reflecting the current seasonal change, at Casa Mexicana, 35 Montgomery Drive, Athlone in Pietermaritzburg, on June 9 and 11.

Music lovers can enjoy the celebrated Nocturne in E-flat by Chopin, Debussy’s Arabesque, Chopin's Ballade No 3, music by Mozart and selections from contemporary composers.

“As we approach the special hues of winter light and the onset of the magical wintry days, I wanted to present a richly coloured programme of magical melodies … music that makes the piano resonate with rich and warming colours,” said Duigan.
