Swiss pianist Christina Harnisch will give a piano recital at Goethe Institute on May 16 at 8pm.
There will be a female flavour to the evening when Swiss pianist Christina Harnisch sits down at 8pm on May 16 to perform at the Goethe Institute in Bangkok.
Harnisch has long made the works of women composers a focal point for her career, and this concert will be no different.
The programme will feature Maria Szymanowska's Etiuda C-Dur, Fanny Mendelssohn's "Mai" aus dem Zyklus Das Jahr and Cecile Chaminade's Pecheurs de nuit e-moll Opus 127.
But male composers won't be left out: Frederic Chopin's Nocturne b-moll Opus 9 and Sonata b-moll Opus 35, Claude Debussy's Pour le Piano and Felix Mendelssohn's Venetianisches Gondellied will also be in the mix.
Harnisch took her concert diploma at the Berne Conservatory and University before she embarked on further studies in Paris, London, Germany and Italy.
She has appeared as a soloist in piano recitals, orchestra concerts and chamber music concerts.
Her repertoire ranges from Bach to contemporary music. Her main focus, however, lies on the works of women composers such as Chaminade, Clara Schumann, Fanny Mendelssohn and Grazyna Bacewicz.
The versatile musician also gives masterclasses at universities and conservatories. She has toured in the US, South America, Europe, China and Thailand.
Tickets cost 250 and 500 baht and are available at Robinson Piano at Siam Discovery (tel 02-658-1080/1). For more information, call 081-682-8000.
