Violinist Yada Lee and pianist Kant Lormsomboon will return to Sala Sudasiri Sobha throne hall for an evening of all-French music, on Sunday at 4pm.

Titled "Après Un Rêve... After A Dream", the concert will feature chamber music works such as César Franck's Sonata For Violin And Piano In A Major and Gabriel Fauré's Sonata No.1 In A Major.

The two titans are parted by Nocturne, a lesser-known work by Lili Boulanger, a French prodigy from Paris and the first female to win the Prix de Rome composition prize. The programme will conclude with Fauré's popular song Après Un Rêve.

The evening performance will be a journey back in time to the turn of the 20th century in Paris, the centre of arts and all inspirations. One cannot deny the immersive feeling you get once in the middle of it all, to be surrounded by new talents, ideas, colours, tastes and textures. Even today Paris is lively and filled with much beauty.

Yada Lee holds a master's degree from the Mannes School of Music, a bachelor's degree in violin performance from the Oberlin Conservatory of Music, and an artist diploma from the Glenn Gould School of The Royal Conservatory.

She has performed as a guest violinist with the Royal Scottish National Orchestra, Canadian Opera Company, Dubrovnik Symphony and Charleston Symphony to name a few. Currently, she's a member of the Verbier Festival Chamber Orchestra. Kant, meanwhile, is a versatile musician who has performed in prestigious concert halls such as Walt Disney Concert Hall, Carnegie Hall Stern Auditorium, Konzerthaus Berlin and Wiener Konzerthaus.

He holds a master's degree in piano chamber music and song interpretation from Mozarteum University Salzburg and is now an assistant artist at the Piano Academy of Bangkok.

Sala Sudasiri Sobha is on Lat Phrao 41 yaek 7-2. Tickets cost 1,000 baht (500 baht for students).
