Dear Music Lovers
Violinist Alexander Gilman has arrived in South Africa with his ensemble of 10 young musicians – ready to perform different programmes in Stellenbosch, Johannesburg, Sasolburg and last but not least – the Cape Town Concert Series on Saturday 21st March in the Baxter Concert Hall. These brilliant string musicians perform all around Europe and are mentored by Alexander Gilman throughout the year. Each concert features some of the ensemble members as soloists and includes South African cellist Luka Coetzee as well as musicians from Japan, Germany and the USA.
To give you an idea of what you can expect- here is a short video of Miclen LaiPang with the ensemble:

Please note – some sad news: due to the current travel restrictions from the USA, Lavrova Primakov Piano Duo have unfortunately cancelled their tour for April. We are lucky to announce that in their place we will have not two but three pianos – playing various orchestral transcriptions with Albie van Schalkwyk, Francois du Toit and Jose Dias.
We look forward to welcoming you to the Concert Series. As always, if you have any queries, please do not hesitate to contact me.
