Jill Richards and Christophe Fellay at Rhodes

The Gardens of the Equinox project is a duo comprising of pianist Jill Richards and composer and drummer Christophe Fellay. Richards and Fellay performed at Rhodes Department of Music and Musicology on Tuesday last week. Jill Richards, South Africa’s most acclaimed contemporary pianist, interpreted Christophe Fellay’s compositions while taking part in a sound experiment resulting from the dialogue between piano and percussion instruments. With the help of Boudina McConnachie from Victoria Girls High School, interested learners from VGHS attended the concert, and participated in a question-and-answer session and masterclass with Richards and Fellay at the end.
