‘Borne Baroque’ with NMMU Strings

2015-11-25 06:23

THE NMMU Music Department will present the NMMU Strings’ final recital of the year, titled “Borne Baroque” at the Music Conservatoire in Bird Street on November 29 at 5pm.

The name of the recital, featuring musicians Liske Pot- gieter, Charlandi Blom, Segun Soyemi and Luxolo Jule, refers to both the “bearing” of beautiful Christmas music to the public as well as to “(re)birth’, which is the essence of the season.

The theme composer for this year’s performances of NMMU Strings is Corelli. The programme will feature his famous Christmas Concerto, Concerto Grosso No.8, as well as music of his most well-known student, Handel.

From Handel’s Messiah, first performed in 1742, NMMU Strings will bring the audience three arias for all four voice types (bass, tenor, alto and soprano) as used in the Oratorio. In addition, NMMU Strings will perform a harpsichord concerto of the next generation Italian composer Antonio Vivaldi.

A few chorale settings of Christmas hymns by Johann Sebastian Bach will complement the concert’s Christmas theme programme.

Entrance to the concert is free.
