Silpakorn University's Faculty of Music and Globex Corporation present a chamber music concert performed by the Pro Musica Quartet at Four Seasons Hotel Bangkok on Sunday at 5pm.
The Pro Musica should be a familiar name among lovers of string quartet music during the 60s.
The original four members of the quartet were Imdad Hussain, third secretary of the Pakistani Embassy in Bangkok; Gosch, a German businessman; Ajarn Kamtorn Snidvongse and concertmaster ML Usni Pramoj.
They rehearsed on Tuesday evenings and played lots of Haydn, some Mozart and early Beethoven. And that was the beginning of Western classical music in Bangkok.
The accomplished viola player, conductor, composer ML Usni is still performing with the reformed Pro Musica. The new line-up has a new concertmaster, distinguished and much respected Thai violinist Tasana Nagavajara on first violin, leading Thai violinist Siripong Tiptan on second violin and Kittikhun Sodprasert, one of Thailand's most reputable and famous composers and arranger, on cello.
The main works to be played will be the delightfully tuneful and nostalgic String Quintet Opus 77 by Czech composer Antonin Dvorak and Gioachino Rossini's rarely performed work Sonata for Strings No.1 in G Major.
Tickets cost 500 Baht (100 baht for students). Four Seasons Hotel is on Ratchadamri Road. For reservations, email email@example.com.
