Well-known pianists meet at the Baxter

Two of South Africa’s most re-nowned pianists, Kathleen Tagg and Andre Petersen, have joined forces to perform Where Worlds Collide: Kathleen Tagg and André Petersen on Friday March 18 at the Baxter Concert Hall, at 8pm, when they will also launch their CD of the same name.

Produced by Dre & Chan Music Concepts and Spotted Kat Music, Where Worlds Collide draws from the rich sonic tapestries of classical music, South African jazz and traditional music from sub­Saharan Africa, to explore the diverse realms of music that can be created with a piano.

The show will consist of an array of additional elements, such as techniques Tagg has devel- oped, using the piano from the inside out, including plucking, bowing and stopping the strings to create a magical world of new sounds. Petersen combines his classical training with his jazz career, while Tagg is a classi- cal musician who improvises and writes music that crosses genres.

Tickets cost R120 or R85 for groups of 10 or more.

Tickets for pensioners and students are R50. Book at Computicket.
