Two stellar international musicians will return to perform with the Royal Bangkok Symphony Orchestra during "Roeland Hendrikx Plays Mozart Clarinet Concerto" in the Main Hall of Thailand Cultural Centre, Ratchadaphisek Road, on Saturday at 7.30pm.

Presented by the Royal Bangkok Symphony Orchestra Foundation under the Royal Patronage of HRH Princess Sirivannavari Nariratana Rajakanya, the classical concert will feature Mozart's Clarinet Concerto In A Major, which is one of the greatest works composed for the instrument.

The timeless masterpiece will be rendered by Belgian clarinet player Hendrikx, who has appeared as clarinet soloist with, amongst others, the Belgium National Orchestra, the Flemish Symphony Orchestra, the Limberg Symphonic Orchestra, the Georgia Philharmonic and the Symphonic Orchestra of Lithuania.
