On 8 November Charl du Plessis performs at the 38th Fränkische Musiktage in the Historisches Hofgut Hörstein, Alzenau – East of Frankfurt. The programme celebrates the music of the German composer Paul Hindemith (1895-1963) and compares the influence of Jazz music on his compositional style. Very few pianists are able to perform music across the styles ranging from jazz, classics to ragtime and stride piano. This is where Charl du Plessis specialise in the versatility of music a single body encompassing many styles. For the Alzenau recital Charl du Plessis will perform a varied programme illustrating the direct influence of Jazz and its subtle nuances that played a role in Hindemith’s compositional style. The programme is a celebration of the Golden Twenties with music by George Gershwin, Scott Joplin, Duke Ellington and Isaac Albeniz. This will be Charl du Plessis’ recital debut in Germany and an ideal chance to showcase his comfort of displaying various styles in one programme. The concert will start at 19:00 and will be combined with a meal between three sections of music. For bookings contact http://www.fraenkische-musiktage.de/tickets.htm.
