Nettle & Markham Piano Duo, 5 November, 20h00, Endler Hall, Stellenbosch

Due to popular demand, the Endler Concert Series welcomes back one of the world’s foremost piano duos, David Nettle & Richard Markham on Saturday 5 November at 20h00 in the Endler Hall, Stellenbosch. They have been performing together for four decades, one of a handful of international ensembles whose dedication and commitment have stood the test of time. The expertise and wealth of experience they bring to the concert platform coupled with the originality of their approach in this specialist medium ensure their universal appeal.

The publication Music and Musicians describes them as “A brilliant British duo…….no praise could be high enough…….. brilliantly fleet and entertaining…….performed with infectious verve and spirit” whilst The Times states “……..a volume and scale of expression comparable to that of an orchestra”.

For this concert they offer a varied recital of not only standard works but also their own distinctive transcriptions: Saint-Saens’ Scherzo, Op. 87 and Polonaise, Op. 77; Shostakovich’s Concertino, Op. 94; and their own transcriptions of Ravel’s Introduction & Allegro and the famous Bolero.

Tickets for R140 (regular) and R100 (students and pensioners) are available now through Computicket and at the door.
