Megan-Geoffrey Prins piano recital

Saturday 19 October at 3.30pm

Megan-Geoffrey Prins performs works by Johan Cloete

The Endler Concert Series in collaboration with the Irma Stern Museum presents South African pianist Megan-Geoffrey Prins. He will perform a solo piano recital in honour of South African composer, Johan Cloete. Johan dedicates this concert to the memory of Victor Tichardt and Sonja Canto.

Prins has earned a reputation as a pianist of remarkable technical facility and abundant musicality, and is this year’s recipient of the Standard Bank Young Artist of the year award for Classical Music. Johan Cloete studied at the universities of Cape Town (BMus 1980, MMus 1985) and Stellenbosch. In 2010 he completed a DMus in Composition, at the University of the Witwatersrand, under Jeanne Zaidel-Rudolph. His compositions are written for a wide range of genres, including sacred works, chamber music and orchestral pieces. A strong vein of mysticism in Cloete’s music gives his works a distinctive character. His fascination with the occult, the surreal and the other-worldly, are balanced by a disciplined intellectualism, creating a style that is both intuitive and intellectual.

Prins will perform both Cloete’s Piano I, Piano IV and Klipklavier alongside works by Debussy and Liszt.

The concert takes place on Saturday 19 October at 3:30pm at the UCT Irma Stern Museum, Rosebank, Cape Town.

Tickets are R140 (regular) and R100 (students and pensioners) and are available through Computicket and at the door. For more information contact Fiona Grayer at concerts@sun.ac.za or 021 808 2358.


Die Endler Konsertreeks, in samewerking met die Irma Stern-museum bied ‘n uitvoering aan met die Suid-Afrikaanse pianis Megan-Geoffrey Prins gewy aan die werk van die Suid-Afrikaanse komponis Johan Cloete. Johan dra hierdie konsert op aan Victor Tichardt en Sonja Canto.

Prins het reeds ‘n hoë aansien verwerf as pianis met ‘n merkwaardige tegniese vaardigheid en ‘n oorweldigende musikale aanvoeling. Hy is ook aangewys as vanjaar se Standard Bank Jong Kunstenaar in Klassieke Musiek.

Johan Cloete was ‘n student aan die universiteite van Kaapstad (BMus 1980, MMus 1985) en Stellenbosch. In 2010 het hy ‘n DMus in Komposisie aan die Universiteit van die Witwatersrand, onder Jeanne Zaidel-Rudolph, voltooi. Sy komposisies dek ‘n wye spektrum van genres, insluitend gewyde musiek, kamermusiek en orkeswerke. Sy musikale styl toon sterk mistieke elemente, wat ‘n spesiale karakter aan die musiek verleen. Sy belangstelling in die okkulte, die surrieële en die bonatuurlike word in sy musiek gebalanseer deur ‘n gedissiplineerde intellektualisme; ‘n styl wat beide intuïtief en intellektueel is.

Benewens werke van Debussy en Liszt, sal Prins Cloete se Piano I, Piano IV en Klipklavier

uitvoer. Die konsert vind plaas op Saterdag 19 Oktober om 3:30nm by die Irma Stern-museum, Rondebosch, Kaapstad.

Kaartjies teen R140 (gewoon) en R100 (studente en pensioenarisse) is tans beskikbaar by Computicket, en by die deur. Vir meer inligting skakel met Fiona Grayer by concerts@sun.ac.za of 021 808 2358.
