Ohio Northern University presents ‘Westhuizen Duo’
The Ohio Northern University Department of Music presents the Westhuizen Duo, an internationally acclaimed piano duo, at Snyder Recital Hall in Presser Hall on Sunday, Nov. 3, at 8 p.m.
The concert is free and open to the public.
Pierre and Sophie van der Westhuizen, pianists, are graduates of the University of Cincinnati’s College-Conservatory of Music and have appeared at major festivals and venues throughout the USA and the major concert halls of South Africa. They were the first piano duo to be accepted into the prestigious PianoTexas International Academy and Festival (formerly known as the TCU/Cliburn Institute), where they received master classes from Harold Martina, John Owings, Jan Jiraceck and the legendary Janos Starker.
Their latest CD release on AMP recordings features the complete works for two pianos by Francis Poulenc.
