CLASSICS FOR ALL PROGRAMME

3 – 5 DECEMBER

Friday 3 December
Trio Pastel
The Greyton Lodge
19:00
R150

Trio Pastel is a Cape Town-based trio formed in 2020, combining the talents of Liesl Stoltz (flute), Jana van der Walt (harp) and Petrus Coetzee (viola). This combination of instruments was a favourite of Impressionist composers during the late 1800s and therefore most of the existing repertoire for the combination centres around music in this style. However, many transcriptions have been made for this setting over the years. The programme will include popular works by Diabelli, Lefebvre, Devienne and Jongen, as well as transcriptions of the well-known Bergamasque Suite by Debussy and “Dance of the blessed spirits” by Gluck.

Saturday 4 December
Intonga Reed Quintet
Fiore Nursery
15:00
R150

Established in 2019 with a sold out debut performance, the Intonga Reed Quintet is made up of five dynamic local musicians with a vast performance experience between them. This unique combination of reed instruments, as first conceived by the highly successful Dutch ensemble, Calefax Reed Quintet, is the first of its kind in South Africa. Intonga’s members not only form part of the Cape Town Philharmonic Orchestra as full-time and regular ad hoc members, but enjoy an active teaching schedule both privately and at esteemed institutions in and around Cape Town. The unique sound created by this combination of instruments, and a passion for the stage, is what has drawn the five members of Intonga together. The five members of Intonga are Carin Bam (oboe), Frances Brand (clarinet), Liam Burden (saxophone), Annelize de Villiers (bass clarinet), and Simon Ball (bassoon):
