First Thursday Music Recital
18h30 for 19h00
The Association of Arts Pretoria is proud to announce its new series of Wednesday Lunchtime and First Thursday Evening Recitals on our newly acquired grand piano. Experience the unique opportunity to hear some of our country’s most prominent musicians live in concert.
The launch of the series is on Thursday 7 March 2019 at 18h30 for 19h00 with a performance of Chopin Waltzes by the acclaimed pianist, Wessel van Wyk.
As a classical pianist, Wessel van Wyk needs no introduction. On completion of his music training in Vienna, having won the first prize in the international Bösendorfer Piano Competition, he returned to South Africa to establish himself as one of this country’s most active and versatile musicians.
Wessel obtained a DMus (Performing Arts) from UP in 2001, the first musician to receive this degree in South Africa. He is an Associate Professor in the Music Department of the University of Pretoria where he tutors piano and chamber music and supervises post-graduate dissertations.
Wessel will play a programme consisting of
fourteen of Chopin’s charming piano waltzes. There is a waltz for every mood –
some are exuberant, some sad, some longing, some witty and humorous, and some
simply brilliant and virtuoso.Date
