New Year's Eve Concerts
If you're after a New Year's Eve like you have never experienced before then a concert on this auspicious day will satisfy that void this NYE!
New Year’s Eve Concert. Midnight in Moscow. Sasha Boldachev
A fascinating story surrounds the engagement of this world famous Russian Concert Harpist at Brooklyn Theatre. Artistic Director, Willem Vogel encountered a splendid rendition of Chopin’s Fantasy Impromptu on Facebook. This work was performed on the harp, by Sasha Boldachev.
Willem was totally intrigued by the fact that such a chromatic, virtuoso piano work could be so seamlessly executed on the harp. He sent the video clip to SA harpist, Amarillie Ackermann, to confirm that this would be an almost impossible work to perform on an instrument like the harp. Amarillie totally agreed that she was flabbergasted and could not quite explain the intricate pedalling that such a piece would involve.
Willem wrote to Sasha to express his awe at this feat and got chatting to the famous artist. An innocent question followed: “Would you ever be interested to perform at Brooklyn Theatre” followed by an enthusiastic ‘Yes!” from Sasha. There and then a deal was struck and concerts arranged in Brooklyn Theatre as well as Stellenbosch.
The famous New Year’s eve Concerts at Brooklyn Theatre are now a nine year old tradition, with many of these concerts totally sold out along the way. Nothing could be more exciting to welcome in the New Year, than some brilliant music making on the harp, as solo instrument, accompanied by a String Quintet.
Thus far, the concerts presented on New Year’s Eve, have only enjoyed a single performance on the actual night. This year, patrons who are not comfortable with night driving on New Year’s Eve, can choose to enjoy a second performance of this concert on Sunday afternoon 29 December.
The youthful Boldachev is a classical harpist in the true sense of the word and his performances of the great harp concerti and other solo works for this instrument are legendary. He is also a fine arranger and even does photographic modelling, because of his striking looks.
- Cost: R400 per person
- When: 31 December, 10pm - 12am
- Venue: Brooklyn Theatre, C/o Thomas Edison & 13th St, Pretoria
