VIRTUSO saxophonist, David Salleras, will be performing at Casa Mexicana, 35 Montgomery Road, Athlone, with concert pianist, Christopher Duigan, at 7.30pm on Saturday, June 24.

The concert is part of a nationwide tour by the two musicians in June and July.

Since his first visit in October 2012, Salleras has been collaborating on a project of concerts and has recorded two albums with Duigan – Indigo and Midnight Blue – both of which are available on iTunes.

The Barcelona-based musician has attracted international attention through his fluency in a variety of musical styles. His innovative compositions, which incorporate traditional flamenco idioms with contemporary and avant-garde performing techniques, are performed by saxophonists worldwide.

Duigan is widely regarded as one of South Africa’s leading concert pianists. He has performed extensively with the KwaZulu- Natal­ Philharmonic, Cape Philharmonic and Johannesburg Philharmonic­ Orchestras and has a popular following through his innovative Music Revival concerts.

For this series, the two musicians will perform works from the traditional saxophone repertoire by Jules Demersseman, JS Bach, Darius Milahaud’s Scaramouche and music from Spanish composer and saxophonist by Pedro Itturalde.

Itturalde’s Suite Hellenique traditionally offers pianist and saxophonist plenty of opportunity to explore a wide range of dynamic interplay through a variety of musical styles.

Also on the programme will be Salleras and Duigan’s own creative­ arrangements of music by Astor Piazzolla, Salleras’s own solo work, Caprices, and Duigan’s compositions from Indigo and Midnight Blue.

Copies of Indigo and Midnight Blue will be available to purchase at all concerts.

Tickets for the concert are R160, including refreshments.

Booking is essential, email book ing@musicrevival. or SMS or WhatsApp to 083 417 4473.

Safe parking is available.
