Oboe and Piano Duo Recital
Enoch Sontonga Hall on the Unisa Sunnyside Campus
14 August: 16h00

An abundance of musicians from the Western Cape are visiting Pretoria this weekend. And it is not every day that an oboe recital is presented in this musical hub, but music lovers can look forward to one on Sunday, 14 August 2011 with celebrated oboist André van Daalen (now from Germany) and the equally celebrated pianist, Albie van Schalkwyk to accompany him.

The concert, presented by the Unisa Music Foundation, will take place in the Enoch Sontonga Hall on the Unisa Sunnyside Campus on Sunday 14 August at 16:00.

Currently principal cor anglais player in the Hessian State Theatre Orchestra in Wiesbaden, Germany, André van Daalen studied at the University of Stellenbosch as well as in Germany and Spain. He made South African musical history when he became the first oboist to win the National ATKV Muzique Competition in 2004.

Albie van Schalkwyk
is well-known as one of South-Africa's most sought-after and beloved pianists and accompanists. After teaching at the universities in Potchefstroom and Bloemfontein, he took up a post as Associate Professor in piano at the College of Music in Cape Town in 2009.
He is the  proud winner of the Huberte Rupert Prize, awarded to him for his contribution to ensemble playing and teaching over the past 30 years by the SA Academy of Arts and Sciences in 2009 at their centenary.

The romantic programme to be performed by the artists, consists of:

  • Three Romances by Schumann
  • A transcription of three Schumann Lieder
  • A transcription of two movements from Beethoven’s Wind Quintet in E-flat major
  • The Oboe sonata Op 166 by Saint-Saëns.
  • A sonata by Milanese composer Carlo Yvon
  • Sicilienne by Fauré
  • Pièce en forme de Habanera by Ravel
  • Capriccio, Op 80 by Ponchielli.

Tickets for this event are sold only at the door at R80 for adults and R60 for students and pensioners.
