Green, Harrold to grace Subscriptions concert

The two recently performed at the Harare International Festival of the Arts (Hifa).

The recital will start at 4pm and will feature a programme totally different to that given at Hifa.

The pianists are among renowned international players.

“Green was born in Australia, where he attained a Masters degree in Music Performance at the University of Melbourne, having earned almost all of the most prestigious cultural awards Australia has to offer,” said chairman of Celebs, Frans Eigenraam.

He said during 2008 Green was the prize winner at the International Two Piano Grieg Competition and received the Phonographic Performance Company of Australia award.

After settling in London in 2006 he regularly performs in Europe and abroad with most recently having given critically acclaimed recitals in most countries in Europe as well as in China, Africa and Australia.

“Harrold is one of Australia’s busiest and most sought after pianists and during his undergraduate and postgraduate studies at the Australian National Academy of Music he was made Academy Fellow, the first person so chosen after only one year of study,” Eigenraam said.

Harrold had performed extensively throughout Europe, USA, Africa and Australia and had gained an international reputation as an associate artist and has performed with Thomas Reid, Wissam Boustany, Mats Lindstrom, Charles Castleman and many other world class musicians.

In 2002 Harrold travelled to the Orkney Islands to perform a concert of Maxwell Davies’ works in the presence of the composer.

He was a founding member of the award winning ‘Kegelstatt Ensemble’ and performs with the internationally acclaimed pianist Coady Green.

“This will be another exciting and innovative performance and will have broad appeal to musical enthusiasts of all ages,” Eigenraam said.

He said the programme included Mozarts’s Sonata for piano duo in D major, Schubert’s Lebenssturme, Czerny’s Variations on a theme by Rossini, Listz’s Hungarian Rhapsody number three, Ravel’s Mother Goose Suite and Rhapsody Espangnole, a selection of pieces from Mendelssohn’s Midsummer Night’s Dream and Poulenc’s Sonata for Piano Duo.
