Part of the Endler Concert series, Trio Pastel sees Flutist Lieslt Stoltz, violist Petrus Coetzee and harpist Jana van der Walt performing an enticing combination of plucked, wind and string instruments.
For the concert, these three South African musicians perform a programme of music spanning 250 years, including a world premiere composition written specifically for this instrument configuration by well-known South African composer Matthijs van Dijk. Other repertoire on this programme is specially fitted to the combo – Diabelli’s Trio calls for a violin which is substituted by the flute, and a guitar which is substituted by the harp. Joseph Jongen’s Deux Pièces calls for a cello which is substituted by the viola. Claude Debussy’s Bergamasque and Charles-Edouard Lefebvre’s Ballade, are both arranged for this particular ensemble.
