Inspired by the life and character of Mr. Nelson Mandela, pianist, composer, arranger, Burton Naidoo has transcribed some of Mr Mandela’s’ most iconic speeches. The words of the speeches are pitch-classed and harmonised in
the effort to create a musical backdrop to these important pieces. Burton has also written new compositions to compliment the performance.
Written for solo piano and track, the audience can expect speeches from the Rivonia Trial, praise singing from Sthembile Mlangeni and Zolani Mkhiva at the inauguration, as well as Mr FW De Klerk’s announcement to free Nelson Mandela at Parliament, 1990. Prolific Composer, Burton Naidoo has performed throughout the world and
continues to push the boundaries of his musical imagination.
