A memorable way to approach the close of the first decade of the 2nd millennium on December 29, 2010, at 7.30 pm four exemplary pianists will perform a recital of great classical piano works by Chopin, Rachmaninoff, Debussy, Brahms and Schumann presented at the Tugu Hotel, Canggu, Bali.
The star performer of the evening will be Boris Kraljevic, distinguished pianist and professor of piano studies and Artist in Residence at the Nanyang Academy of Fine Arts
in Singapore. Hailing from Montenegro, Boris studied at the Tchaikovsky State Conservatory
in Moscow. Amongst other pieces, Prof Kraljevic will perform two of Chopin's great ballads.
Joining the Maestro in Bali will be three other pianists. Aditya Permana and Nguyen Tien Khai are two of Prof Kraljevic's star scholarship students. Aditya from Indonesia and Khai from Vietnam – are both multiple award-winners in regional piano competitions. Also appearing will be Neil Franks, another student of Prof Kraljevic. Originally from the UK and having studied at the Guildhall School of Music,
Neil has been in Singapore since 1982 and has performed regularly in chamber recitals there.
The four will play a repertoire of solos as well as works for two pianos-four hands and two pianos-eight hands.
In what promised to be a highlight of the evening, the pianists will perform part of Colin McPhee's Balinese suite for two pianos written in Ubud in the early 1930's. Seldom performed publicly and replicating the instrumentation of a Balinese gamelan orchestra, the McPhee compositions are considered technically challenging both in their harmonic structure and syncopated accentuation.
Tickets are priced at Rp. 250,000 (US$28) for the concert only or Rp. 450,000 (US$49) for the concert and post-concert dinner at the hotel. Drinks will be available both before the concert and during the interval. Part of the ticket proceeds will be donated to the Green School Bali Scholarship Fund.
