Inyoka ("snake") - performed by Andrea Hobson and Albert Combrink “Inyoka” is an isiXhosa word meaning snake. In Africa, there are many venomous snakes, but none as deadly as the mamba. Consequently, the mamba is often synonymous with fear. This fear was the inspiration for “Inyoka.” The piece consists of three parts: "Mamba", "Chase" and "Neurotoxin" with a repetition of "Mamba" at the end.

"Cruda sorte !..." (L'Italiana in Algeri) Bongiwe Nakani & Albert Combrink (Piano) One of the stars of "Concert in a Convent Garden 2015" was Bongiwe Nakani - a sparking personality matched by a phenomenal coloratura mezzo-soprano. Amateur footage recorded in 2015 Bongiwe Nakani was born in Cape Town and grew up in the township of Khayelitsha. She started singing at the age of seven. Her career in music blossomed at high school where her solo career began. She was national champion at the Tirisano Eisteddfod Choral Competition from 2004 -2007 and was awarded the prize for the best upcoming mezzo-soprano. She enrolled at the South African College of Music at UCT in 2009 and has completed her fourth year of Performer’s Diploma in Opera studying Patrick Tikolo. In 2011, 2012 and 2013, she won 2nd prize at the Schock Foundation Singing Competition. In 2013 she was also a finalist at the ATKV Musiqanto Singing Competition. She was invited to attend the Glimmerlgass Young Artists Program in America, performing in Kurt Weil’s Lost in the Stars. Whilst in the States she had the honour of singing at the United Nations on Nelson Mandela’s birthday. Among many operatic roles while at UCT, she also performed in the Tales of Hoffman in 2013 at Artscape. Also in 2013, she won 2nd prize and the ‘audience’ prize in Njabulo Madlala’s new Singing Competition. In 2013 she sang the role of Rosina in the Il Barbieri di Siviglia at Artscape. In 2014 she sang Marchesa Malibea in UCT’s Il Viaggio a Reims. Mezzo-soprano Bongiwe Nakani is currently in the first year of her postgraduate degree at the University of Cape Town. She regularly appears on stage in cooperative productions with the Cape Town Opera in roles such as Rosina in Il barbiere di Siviglia and, in the near future, Elisabetta inMaria Stuarda. Bongiwe grew up in Cape Town’s district of Khayelitsha, a township which is notorious for unemployment, HIV/AIDS and a high crime rate. The young singer fought to realize her dream and is now a famous opera talent in her homeland. In 2012, she had the incredible opportunity of singing at Nelson Mandela’s 94th birthday celebrations, appearing in front of international leaders of countries and governments at the UN National Assembly in New York. Bongiwe has been awarded several times with The Schock Foundation Prize for Singing. Bongiwe is currently engaged at the Vienna State Opera. Concert in a Convent Garden is a charity event presented by Albert Combrink - the event uses chamber arrangements of opera and different genres to showcase South African vocal talents while raising money for good causes such as houses for the homeless.

Nacht und Träume D827 (Franz Schubert) arr. Cello & Piano Sarah Acres (Cello) & Albert Combrink (Piano) Published in 1825 as Op.43 No 2, D.827 was composed in the winter of 1822/1823. It is remarkable in Schubert's "Night Song" ouevre, and it remains one of the pinnacles of his output. Notoriously difficult to perform and deceptive in its simplicity, it makes a perfect transition to the cello. Recorded live at Simonstown Methodist Church, Cape Town, South Africa in "Reflections", a Cello Meditation programme.

As member of the National Youth Choir, he took part in the World Choir Olympics in Bremen. In 2006 he joined the UCT Opera School where he is a student of Prof. Virginia Davids. He has taken part in productions by Cape Town Opera and the UCT Opera School. Operatic roles include: the Forester in Janacek's "Cunning Little Vixen" directed by Joshua Major, Don Prudenzio in Rossini's "Il Viaggio a Reims" directed by Matthew Wild, Figaro in UCT Opera School's production of Mozart's "Le Nozze di Figaro", Colline in Puccini's "La Boheme", directed by Prof Angelo Gobbato and the role of Nick Shadow from Stravinski's "The Rakes Progress."

He also made a tremendous impact when he sang -- for the second year -- the very demanding music for the Jewish High Holidays Yom Kipur and Kol Nidrei at Temple Israel Synagogue in Greenpoint, where his musicality and superb handling of Hebrew was complimented by all. He was also part of the Oude Libertas cast of Jaco Bouwer's award-winning stage-production " 'n Ander Tongval", with music by Braam du Toit, based on the book by Antjie Krog which explores South Africa's Apartheid past and transition to Democracy, especially with material related to the "Truth and Reconciliation Commission."

Bookings: Computicket ONE Show Only! Internationally acclaimed and SAMA nominee, CT Tango Ensemble, will be launching their brand new album "Tango Dreams" at Artscape Theatre on Saturday 25 January 2014. The launch consists of only one show as an exclusive live experience of the music on this new album. CT Tango Ensemble are Stanislav Angelov (Bandoneón, Accordion & Vibrandoneon), Petrus de Beer (Violin), Albert Combrink (Piano) & Charles Lazar (Double Bass).The album features several guest artists who will join them on this spectacular evening including Melanie Scholtz (Vocals), Juan Simon (Vocals), Dan Shout (Saxophone), Peter Narun (Guitar) & Kevin Gibson (Drums). Besides all the great musicians and two singers on stage, the Tango Maestro & Tango Instructor Emiliano Fernandez from Buenos Aires, will also make a special guest appearance. This is going to be an evening when you will experience the Tango culture in full bloom right here in the Mother City. Tango started in Latin America as a result of many different cultures (including African) meeting in Buenos Aires and exploring together their passion for music and dance. Today we can see people from all over the world playing, listening & dancing to take part in this beautiful culture. So, now Tango belongs to the World and it is here to stay! The evening will end with a Milonga (Social Tango) which will take place in the foyer of Artscape Theater after the show. All Tango dancers from the Cape Town Tango community or visiting dancers are welcome to join on the dance floor to continue the celebration of the new CT Tango Ensemble Album. More about "Tango Dreams": Following their success of their previous CDs "El Tango en Africa" (2003) & "Tango Club" (2010, nominated for Best Instrumental Album in 2011 SAMA) they continue to indulge the audience with their passion and understanding of the Tango genre. This album like their previous two is a selection of music, which is not only dedicated to the Tango fanatics. This is a CD for people who love Music. The album consists of a fair amount of music by Astor Piazzolla, some old or so-called Traditional Tangos, Tango-Valse & Milonga as well as original music by Charles Lazar & Stanislav Angelov. There is also a familiar jazz influence on this album, like with CT Tango Ensemble's previous albums. Bookings at Computicket: http://online.computicket.com/web/eve...

Nacht und Träume D827 (Franz Schubert) arr. Cello & Piano Sarah Acres (Cello) & Albert Combrink (Piano) Published in 1825 as Op.43 No 2, D.827 was composed in the winter of 1822/1823. It is remarkable in Schubert's "Night Song" ouevre, and it remains one of the pinnacles of his output. Notoriously difficult to perform and deceptive in its simplicity, it makes a perfect transition to the cello. Recorded live at Erin Hall, Cape Town in "Reflections", a Cello Meditation programme.

Plaza was an all-round musician. He was bandoneon-player and pianist for some of Argentina's top orchestras in the late 1940's including the legendary ensembles of Carlos di Sarli and Osvaldo Pugliese. As arranger of existing tangos, he honed his craft in the 1950's, working with the tango giants such as Anibal Troilo and Osvaldo Pugliese. Plaza left a canon of very fine and original tangos. He was influenced by Piazzolla and the Tango Nuevo. Which tanguero was not? But Plaza was not drawn into the heady world of Tango Nuevo. Instead, Plaza was determined that the Tango should not stray too far from its roots as "dance music".

Meticulous in the detail of his appearance, so was Don Agustin Bardi as a musician. Known as a violinist, guitarist and pianist and composed roughly 70 Tangos. He left school after the Third Grade, but was educated musically by an uncle. Obviously unusually gifted, he joined the orchestra Los Artisanos at the age of 8!

There is a constant uncertainty in the resolution of the rhythm - a feeling of unease is created in the listener. Escualo was written originally for Violin for Piazzolla's long time friend, the violinist Fernando Suarez Paz who played in Piazzolla's band for many years.

Fuga y misterio was incidental music for Piazzolla's 1968 operita, Maria de Buenos Aires. The music, one of three instrumentals in the work, accompanied action on the stage where Maria leaves the barrio, arrives in the city and walks around observing the nightlife. A strict fugue for all the instruments is followed by a lyrical section. The surreal plot centers on a prostitute in Buenos Aires, Argentina; the second half takes place after her death. The characters include María (and, after her death, the Shadow of María), a singer of payadas, various members of the Buenos Aires underworld, a poet narrator who is also a goblin-like duende, several marionettes under his control, and a circus of psychoanalysts. Several elements of the libretto suggest parallels between María and Mary, the mother of Jesus (in Spanish, María) or to Jesus himself. While certainly not in the narrow sense an opera ballet, because the dance is tango rather than classical ballet, it falls within the tradition of having set dance pieces integral to an operatic work.The music draws on the nuevo tango idiom for which Piazzolla is famous.

"Piazzolla and Beyond": Cape Town Tango Ensemble - Presented by the Cape Town Concert Series - Saturday 20 April 2013, 8 pm - Baxter Concert Hall, Main Road, Rondebosch, Cape Town, South Africa. The Cape Town Tango Ensemble are busy preparing for our next concert taking place on Saturday 20 April in the Baxter Concert Hall, Rondebosch at 8pm. They told me how much they are enjoying the rehearsal process for building up a full concert programme of music by Piazzolla. Although Piazzolla has a large following, it is rare that this music is given centre stage and I am delighted that the Cape Town Concert Series is able to offer that platform. During the 1950's Piazzolla started his new style of music - Tango Nuevo - which took Tango music from the dance halls of Buenos Aires to the best concert halls of the world. This programme will explore his most important works and will also feature other music works inspired by him. The CT Tango Ensemble consists of four classically trained musicians -- Piet de Beer on violin, Albert Combrink on piano and Charles Lazar on double bass -- all well known around Cape Town as much for their classical solo and accompaniment work as for their ensemble work in the Tango Ensemble. The leader of the group - Stanislav Angelov is Bulgarian born, but South Africa has long been his home. He holds music degrees and diplomas from Bulgaria, UK, South Africa and Argentina where he went in 2005 to study Bandoneón-- the instrument which Piazzolla played and the instrument which is considered to be the soul of this music. Stanislav performed the Bandoneón Concerto of Piazzolla with the Cape Philharmonic Orchestra under the baton of Maestro Francisco Bonin; and with the Eastern Cape Philharmonic Orchestra conducted by Maestro German Gutierez. He also led the orchestra for the production of Piazzolla's Tango Operita "Maria de Buenos Aires". He is regularly invited overseas to give masterclasses and concerts on this special instrument. The Tango Ensemble have released 2 CDs -El Tango en Africa and Tango Club which was nominated for SAMA Best Instrumental Album in 2011. They are busy with a new cd due to be released shortly and have been invited to return to Germany in September 2013 when they will appear again at the Gewanthause amongst other concert venues. For this concert, The Tango Ensemble will also feature classical guitarist Peter Narun. But the concert is not the end of the evening. Afterwards we are inviting the audience to join us in the foyer for a 'Milonga' -- an evening of dance - and hope to encourage audience members to join local schools of tango dancers and dance the night away. The Milonga is free of charge and open to everyone . Fortunately for my two left feet - tango is something that can also be enjoyed by watching, so feel free to enjoy a drink or coffee at the bar and enjoy with me from the sidelines, the dancing and the music. Tickets for all our concerts are now available from Computicket and at the door. For more information you can visit our website www.ctconcerts.co.za where you can find Youtube recordings of our artists and detailed biographies. If you have any queries you are always welcome to contact me directly on 021 439 7663 / 084 682 1337 or email info@ctconcerts.co.za. We look forward to having you join us again at the Cape Town Concert Series for the best recitals and chamber music in Cape Town.

Favourite Things: Louise Howlett & Albert Combrink (LIVE, Fismer Hall) Louise Howlett (Vocalist) & Albert Combrink (Piano) "Favourite Things" from "The Sound of Music" Recorded live at the Fismer Hall, Stellenbosch Conservatorium, August 2012 "Music of the Night 2 - a Night at the Movies" is a show which celebrates the world of the silver screen, through some of the greatest arias, jazz standards and ballads ever written. From A Room with a View to James Bond to Moulin Rouge, Louise & Albert seamlessly move across the styles of Puccini, Bizet, Rogers and Hammerstein, Hoagy Carmichael, John Barry and more. This programme has become the trademark of these two multi-talented performers providing something for everyone. For more information: singing-lady@hotmail.com or visit: http://www.louisehowlett.co.za or http://albertcombrink.com Louise studied opera at the Royal College of Music in London and made her Cape Town debut with the Cape Town Philharmonic Orchestra at its millennium concert at Kirstenbosch. Albert finished his classical piano studies in Natal and has since become one of the most widely used vocal accompanists and coaches in Cape Town. Alongside this he is a founder member of the CT Tango Ensemble and in 2006 joined forces with Louise to explore their passion for Jazz, Broadway and more, creating their own unique brand of Across the styles productions. This has taken them throughout the country from Concert Halls to Blues Festivals, culminating in their 2010 CD "Night Sessions" Biz Lounge News Review in Bizcommunity: "Louise Howett (the lady with a voice like an angel) and Albert Combrink (the pianist with magic fingers) make the perfect duo." WhatsoninCapeTown Review: - I thoroughly enjoyed Howlett and Combrink's move to highlight the nuanced emotion that songs provide in cinema. - Her range and skill and her easy, pleasant interpretation of the music was aurally opulent. - Howlett and Combrink soared through jazz from the 1940s and 50s with excellent arrangements and superb skill. - a programme that continued to show off Howlett's range and versatility and Combrink's impressive technique
