Buskaid is back with their April online concert: “A Musical Miracle”
Starring in this concert is SA’s own hugely talented young harpist, Jude van der Wat, aka Jude Harpstar, in a stunning performance of Debussy’s Danses sacrée et profane.
The ‘curious creatures’ referred to in the concert title are featured in the 17thcentury Italian composer Carlo Farina’s Capriccio Stravagante, which is full of strange and fascinating sounds – ground-breaking in their day.
Also in the programme are two short pieces in which Mzwandile Twala is soloist: one a piece of romantic film music, and the other, Kreisler’s well-known Praeludium and Allegro – but with a dramatic twist at the end!
And finally, as well as those enchanting pop songs and vibrant kwela, you will be treated to a lush performance of Mendelssohn’s 10th String Symphony, written when he was just twelve – one of Buskaid’s most ambitious undertakings to date.
Dates: This month’s event will be streamed from 30th April to 2 May 2021
