For an 'End Of Year' concert with something special, Christopher Duigan's' Music Revival Concerts presents a popular and intriguing selection of music from his recent My Favourite Things selection. This will take place at Casa Mexicana in Pietermaritzburg on December 30 and 31.

After receiving many positive and enthusiastic responses from his rent presentation, audiences can now expect a reprisal of this selection plus more new additional interludes! This pianistic 'tour de force’ traverses the music of ‘Ragtime King’ Scott Joplin, and swaggers through a dollop of sultry South American tango, both Brazilian and Argentine. From the classical repertoire he includes Mozart's Turkish Rondo, Rachmaninoff's celebrated Prelude in C-sharp minor, music by Beethoven, Chopin and Schumann.

From the 'not so classical' volumes he plays Joplin’s Maple Leaf Rag and The Easy Winners, La Cumparsita, and tangos by Julian Plaza. Music from Brazilian Ernesto Nazareth, which Duigan has championed for a number of years, completes the South American selection.

My Favourite Things Reprised takes place on December 30 and 31 at 19h30 at Casa Mexicana, 35 Montgomery Drive, Pietermaritzburg. Tickets R150 and doors open at 19h00. Take your own wine/drinks. Light refreshments and coffee will be served. There is secure parking.
