French Festivities at La Motte

by Heike Raatz - Magna Carta PR
(Cape Town)

As part of the annual Bastille festival in Franschhoek, the piano duo Zorada Temmingh and Elna van der Merwe compiled a special programme of music by French composers.

Well-known for their wonderful arrangements of classical masterpieces, this once-off performance for La Motte, has them jogging through Saint-Saëns Carnival of the Animals, while shortening Bizet’s Carmen to ten minutes and dancing along with a habanera, a bolero and a cake walk.
