David Bester & James Grace: PAGANINI TO PIAZZOLLA 2.0

Atterbury Theatre, Pretoria

Tickets for 17 July 15:00

Award-winning violinist and senior lecturer in violin and viola at Nelson Mandela University David Bester again joins forces with leading South African-based guitarist and three-time SAMA nominee James Grace in Paganini to Piazzolla 2.0

Following on from sold-out performances at Woordfees 2020, Paganini to Piazzolla 2.0 evolves around Máximo Diego Pujol’s Suite Buenos Aires – a four-movement work that paints a musical picture of life in the South American capital city Piazzolla ultimately called home. Originally composed for flute and guitar, the violin offers a fresh perspective and distinctive sound in this intense and flavourful work.

Combined with a sultry selection of original tangos and classical sonatas for violin and guitar, Paganini to Piazzolla 2.0 perfectly blends the sounds of bowed and plucked strings in a masterful display of sensitive musicianship and technical precision.
