François du Toit is considered one of the best pianists, chamber musicians and music teachers in South Africa. His studies in Germany were accompanied by several international competitions and at this time his co-operation began with the Capetown Symphony Orchestra (CTSO), which invited him to tour with them to China.
In this release, artistic flair meets technical brilliance and shows that the classical music scene of South Africa, despite many political imponderables and financial problems, is thriving.
