’Matsei Moloi

MASERU — Francois Salque came and conquered.
And so did Vincent Peraini.
The two French musicians wowed the dozens who thronged Maseru Sun on Thursday night for the three-hour show organised by Alliance Francaise and Econet Telecom Lesotho. 
Salque, acknowledged as one of the leading cellists of his generation, was the first on stage.
The award-winning cellist received massive applause after every song.
Peirani then took to the stage with his accordion to complete a memorable night of classical and modern jazz.
The young Frenchman, also a renowned clarinettist and composer, has like Salque won many international accolades.
Their show in Maseru drew mostly foreigners who appreciate the genre of music. Annelene Bremmer, one of the spectators, said she had enjoyed the concert.
“I liked it very much,” she said.
“It was interesting how they mixed regional and traditional music.
“I enjoyed the mixture of classical and modern jazz.”
Marcel Grella, another member of the audience, said the show was fantastic.
“They did it very well,” he said.
“It was amazing.”
Lerato and ’Mathabiso, two local women who were at the show, said they had enjoyed the experience.
They said the show was different from Afro-jazz concerts they attended in the past.
“This show is very different and relaxing,” Lerato said.
“French music is different. It makes one feel relaxed.”
’Mathabiso said the concert was lively and refreshing.
