Information

What do Johann Sebastian Bach, Robert Schumann and Edvard Grieg have in common? Well, apart from the obvious, the classical composers all have links with the German city Leipzig. Bach spent the last 27 years of his life working there, dying in 1850. Schumann, together with Felix Mendelssohn, founded Germany's first conservatory of music in the city, and that was where the Norwegian Grieg was trained. To celebrate these connections, three prominent musicians and Silpakorn University faculty members will perform a recital called "@Leipzig". Held in collaboration with Silpakorn University's Faculty of Music and the Fund for Classical Music Promotion, the concert will take place at Siam Society on Asok Road on July 17 at 7pm. Before that, at 6pm, musicologist Jean-Pierre Kirkland will hold a talk entitled "The Leipzig Music Scene - Composers and Works" in English. Tickets cost 300 baht (200 baht for Siam Society members and 50 baht for students). For reservations, call 02-661-6470-7 or email info@siam-society.org.
