Description

Gabriele von Durckheim, Principal Flute of the Cape Town Philharmonic Orchestra and Luis Magalhaes, award winning concert pianist, team up in this exploration of the darker repertoire composed for flute and piano. The flute’s reputation as a virtuosic, light hearted instrument is all too well known, and Gabriele and Luis have chosen in stead to showcase the other side of this instrument’s spectrum, showing off the versatility that the flute is capable of. The program is technically extremely demanding on both instruments, playing to the strengths of both artists.
