After a gap of three years the acclaimed violin and piano duo of Robin Wilson and Kemp English return to Dunedin to give the first of a three concert series which celebrates the Centennial of Knox College, Dunedin. The concert will take place in the intimate setting of the delightful Ross Chapel at Knox College on Friday 8th May at 8.00pm, preceded by a complimentary glass of wine in the main stairwell. The duo’s programme promises to be a magical and unusual event for Dunedin audiences. It is rare to hear Schubert’s complete sonatas for violin and piano in one evening and particularly so when the violin is partnered by a square piano similar to the type of instrument Schubert would have known. After the concert Robin and Kemp will launch their recently recorded CD of this charming repertoire.

Since forming their duo five years ago, Robin and Kemp have toured extensively throughout New Zealand and Australia. Their two discs together, Melodie and Soirée Musicale have both met with widespread critical acclaim and feature regularly on Radio New Zealand Concert and ABC Classic FM. Melodie was subsequently re-released by Universal Music on their flagship Decca label. The duo’s latest CD of Schubert’s violin sonatas will go on general release through Ode Records following their Dunedin concert and is sure to join the other two discs and take its place in the Classical Charts Top 10.

In addition to their duo work, Robin and Kemp enjoy highly active solo careers. In Australia, Robin - who was born and raised in Dunedin - has established himself as one of the leading violinists and teachers of his generation. He lectures at the Sydney Conservatorium of Music, is Concertmaster of the ARCO Chamber Orchestra and plays regularly with the Sydney Symphony Orchestra. He has also given acclaimed solo recitals and been guest soloist with numerous orchestras throughout Australia. Kemp also maintains a busy schedule of solo recitals at home and abroad. His Stormin’ Norma organ concerts and recordings have become a world-wide hit and have introduced the splendours of the Dunedin Town Hall Organ to millions of people; a prominent American radio station recently devoted a whole programme to the Stormin’ Norma CD trilogy! Kemp jets off to Europe to tour later in the year. Also an ardent fortepianist, his second fortepiano CD will be released by Ode Records in a couple of month’s time. This debut recording of Canterbury University’s new Conrad Graf replica contains a feast of some of Schubert’s greatest piano music. A Quinquennial Fellow of Knox College, Kemp continues to maintain a strong association with the College and is the concert series artistic director. The second and third concerts will feature other artists with close links to Knox College, including soprano Nicola Edgecombe, and renowned mezzo and raconteur Patricia Payne in the grand series finale.

As the Chapel has limited seating, tickets will be in short supply. The last candlelit concert at Knox College attracted record audiences so please book early to avoid disappointment. Individual concert and tickets for the whole series are available from the Knox College Porter’s Lodge or for more information contact John Milnes (03 473 0107 Ext. 7813; john.milnes@knoxcollege.ac.nz) concert series co-ordinator.
