Violin, piano at Endler

The Endler Concert Series presents South African artists Jacqueline Martens on violin and Sulayman Human on piano, pictured, on Tuesday April 8, at 8pm, in the Endler Hall.

Jacqueline, who began playing the violin at the age of five, is currently a fourth year undergraduate at the Royal College of Music, London and will continue to study for her Master’s degree in 2018.

She is leader of the London Firebird Orchestra, and as a young professional in the highly competetive London music scene, already enjoys adhoc engagements with the London Philharmonic Orchestra, the Birmingham Philharmonic Orchestra as well as the European Union Youth Orchestra.

Sulayman started piano at the age of 12, and in 2010 he was the youngest winner of the Lionel Bowman Beethoven Bursary Competition and the only person to have won it while in secondary school.

He has won several other competitions, and is currently enrolled for a Master of Music degree at Stellenbosch University.

Jacqui and Sulayman will be performing a varied and challenging programme, including Strauss’s Sonata for violin and piano in E flat major, op.18; Beethoven’s Sonata no.1 in D major, op.12; Mozart’s Adagio in E major, K.261 as well as Massenet’s Meditation from Thaïs and Saint-Saens’ Introduction and Rondo Capriccioso.

Tickets cost R120, and R80 for students and pensioners, at Computicket and at the door. Contact Fiona Grayer at concerts@sun.ac.za or 021 808 2358.
