Jan Hugo - piano recital
(Petronel Malan piano recital cancelled)
25 August 2011

It is with great regret that we have to inform all concert-goers that Petronel Malan will unfortunately not be able to undertake her upcoming concert tour to South Africa.

Petronel has been diagnosed with rheumatic fever just a few days ago. She may under no circumstances travel or perform.

We were however very fortunate that the brilliant young and upcoming concert pianist, Jan Hugo, was available and agreed on short notice to perform in the Odeion on the same date. Thus, concert-goers may use their Petronel Malan tickets to attend the concert by Jan Hugo. Concert-goers may however, if they choose to not go to the Jan Hugo concert, collect a refund at any Compiticket outlet before the concert.

Jan Hugo recently, in July 2011, won the UNISA National Piano Competition. He was born in Bloemfontein and at the age of 11 years he participated in the International Competition for Pianists “Virtuosi per Musica” in Usti nad Labem (Czech Republic) and at 12 year he won the Musicon Senior Primary Piano Competition (Bloemfontein) as well as the Sanlam Music Competition (Cape Town). At the age of 15 years, he won the category “Soloists 18 years old” in the International Piano Competition “Carlo Soliva” in Casale Monferrato (Italy).

At the young age of 13 years he was invited to further his studies in Italy at the Istituto Superiore di Studi Musicali “Vecchi-Tonelli” in Modena. In 2006 he was admitted for a Master’s Diploma in Piano Performance at the Accademia Pianistica Internazionale “Incontri col Maestro” (Imola) where he currently studies with Franco Scala and Boris Petrushansky

In the 2007/8 academic year he was accepted to study for a B.Mus. degree at the Istituto Superiore di Studi Musicale “Vecchi-Tonelli”a and in 2011 he received his degree (cum laude).

Jan has participated in various master classes with internationally acclaimed professors and pianists such as Michel Dalberto, Robert Levin, Jin Ju, Riccardo Risaliti, David Ascanio, Ada, Wodnicki and Joseph Stanford.
