FOR the March installment of the monthly Music Revival concerts,  pianist Christopher Duigan turns his hand to a light-hearted selection of charming  popular classics in Tales from Grandmother’s Piano Album.

With an emphasis on elegance, charm and grace, this selection of music evokes a bygone world of nostalgic classics, often associated with salon music and evenings at the family piano. 

The programme includes: Beethoven’s Minuet in G, Brahms’s Waltz in A-flat, Dvorak’s Humoresque, Rubenstein’s Melody in F and The Maiden’s Prayer, as well as the popular evergreens  Parade of the Tin Soldier, Rustle of Spring and The Teddy Bear’s Picnic.

Duigan will be performing his beautiful piano music from the classical and popular repertoire at St Agnes’ Church, Kloof, at 7.30 pm on March 23.

Tickets for Tales from Grandmother's Piano Album at St Agnes’ Church are R100. Book through the church at 031 764 2017 or e-mailbooking@

Secure parking is available.
