The Siam Sinfonietta will continue Somtow Sucharitkul's Mahler Series with Gustav Mahler's spectacular Titan _ otherwise known as Symphony No.1 during the "Titanic Concert" at Thailand Cultural Centre on Feb 1 at 8pm. 

The Siam Sinfonietta’s ‘Titanic Concert’, conducted by Somtow Sucharitkul, will premiere the fivemovement version of Mahler’s first symphony at Thailand Cultural Centre on Feb 1 at 8pm.

This will be the Thailand premiere of Mahler's five-movement version of the piece including the "lost" second movement, Blumine, which was rediscovered in 1966 by famed Mahler scholar Donald Mitchell. Siam Sinfonietta is one of Southeast Asia's premier youth orchestras, founded two years ago by Somtow Sucharitkul, and is already a winner of the world championship in the symphony orchestra category at the Summa Cum Laude Festival in the Golden Hall of the Musikverein in Vienna.
