Marking a fresh beginning for the year, the Gift of Life Foundation and Sala Sudasiri Sobha are co-organising the first in their "Sunday Four O'Clock" series of chamber music recitals, featuring Nat Yontararak on piano and Chatchawarn Atthakijkosol on flute. The opening concert will take place at the Sala Sudasiri Sobha concert hall on Lat Phrao Soi 41 this Sunday, starting at 4pm.
Nat Yontararak will perform for the first time with Chatchawarn Atthakijkosol in a chamber music recital at Sala Sudasiri Sobha on Sunday.
This is the very first time that Nat, winner of the government's Silpathorn Award in 2006 and the first Steinway Artist to hail from this country, will be performing with Chatchawarn, an outstanding musician who graduated from the prestigious Ecole Normale de Musique de Paris (ENMP).
Chatchawarn was lauded by one of his teachers _ Devy Erlih, professor of violin and chamber music at ENMP _ for his "grand quality of music and technique". Prof Philippe Lesgourgues, who teaches flute at ENMP, also praised the "sonority" of Chatchawarn's sound, his "excellent technique [and] rich sensibility".
The programme for Sunday's concert is a lively, colourful and challenging repertoire. It comprises Mozart's Andante In C Major and his Rondo In D Major, Morlacchi's Il Pastore Svizzero, Chaminade's Concertino and Schubert's Sonate Appeggione and will conclude with Taffanel's Mignon's Fantasy.
Beverages and a light meal will be served after the concert. Donations of any amount will be greatly appreciated. All proceeds will go to the Gift of Life Foundation, a charity which provides help to needy people suffering from diseases of the blood.
