The Cape Town Concert Series presents an Extra recital on Saturday 27 April at 3pm with award winning new generation pianist Daniel Kharitonov.

He will be featured in the Cape Town Philharmonic Orchestra’s Autumn Season playing Rachmaninoff’s 1st Concerto on Thursday 24 April and asked if he could stay on to present a solo recital for the Concert Series with a programme of Rachmaninoff and Chopin – how could we refuse? Long time supporter and patron of the Concert Series – Bill van Rensburg – immediately came to our aid with sponsorship of the artist’s fee and this also allows us to raise much needed funds for the upkeep and maintenance of our very special Steinway Grand Piano.

The programme is Rachmaninoff’s Six Moments Musicaux followed by Chopin Nocturns 1, Op.48 and 2, Op. 27, 12 Etudes op. 25 and 3 Etudes post.Op.    For more background information on the pieces being played, Albert Combrink once again takes you  Inside the Concert Daniel Kharitonov.

Tickets are available from Webtickets and at the Baxter Box Office.  As always the Baxter bar and restaurant will be open before and after the concert.

Born in Yuzhno-Sakhalinsk in the Russian Far East, Daniel Kharitonov emerged as one of the brightest talents of the 15th Tchaikovsky International Competition in 2015 at the age of 16, when his triumphant performance brought him the Third Prize.

Since his successful debut with The Mariinsky Orchestra under Valery Gergiev in 2013, Kharitonov became a regular with the orchestra and has already toured with them to China and Italy, and performed across Russia on the Moscow Easter Festival tours in 2014 and 2015. Other highlights in his native Russia include concerts with the State Academic Symphony Orchestra “Evgeny Svetlanov” and National Philharmonic of Russia, and recitals in halls such as the Tchaikovsky Concert Hall, Great Hall of the Moscow Conservatory and Moscow International Performing Arts Center. He has participated at festivals such as Stars of the White Nights, Stars on Baikal and Crescendo, and regularly works with the Spivakov International Charity Foundation in Moscow.

Elsewhere, Kharitonov gave an electrifying performance at Carnegie Hall in 2013 as part of the Musical Olympus International Festival’s gala concert and has also appeared at the Annecy Classic and International de Colmar festivals in France.

He studied in the class of Professor Valery Piassetski at the Central Music School in Russia. Since 2016, he is studying at the Royal College of Music in London with Professor Dmitri Alexeev and exclusive representative of Daniel Kharitonov is the International Music Agency Harrison Parrott Ltd.
