This concert forms part of the Endler Concert Series 2017. Zanta Hofmeyr and Elna van der Merwe presents this special recital featuring works for violin and piano by three French Composers: Debussy, Poulenc and Saint-Saëns. The concert also serves as a launch for the CD recording of this programme which was recorded in the Endler hall - renowned for its excellent acoustics, by the equally well-known sound engineer, Gerhard Roux in who's capable hands many artists put their trust for the recording process. 

The works by these French composers are extremely well-suited for the two instruments and they capture a whole array of styles and timbres for which they became loved and admired for almost 200 years by now. Saint Saens was born in 1835 and Poulenc died in 1963 - thus all three of them were alive between 1899 and 1918 (when Debussy died). Their compositional styles were very different and they represent distinct characteristics of the romantic -, impressionist - and post-impressionist periods. Audiences across South Africa have expressed surprise and delight during the past year of Zanta and Elna's performances of these works. This is an opportunity not to be missed for classical music lovers in the Winelands.Tickets available at computicket or at the door. More information at concerts@sun.co.za
