HRH Princess Soamsawali will be attending "A Classical Music Performance in Commemoration of the Late HRH Princess Galyani Vadhana", a concert co-organised by the Department of Cultural Promotion and the Fund for Classical Music Promotion, of which Princess Galyani was the patron. It will take place in the Thailand Cultural Centre's small auditorium this Thursday, starting at 7.30pm.

The concert will feature Thai soprano Zion Daoratanahong who will be giving renditions of Si mi chiamanomimi from Puccini's La Boheme and Gretchen am spinnrade by Schubert. Also taking part will be pianist Kimball Gallagher, a native of Boston who holds a master's degree in music from New York's Juilliard School. He has been hailed by critics as a "dynamo" and capable of performances described as "sunlit and rapturous" and "like a lightning bolt". Gallagher's sold-out 2008 debut at Carnegie Hall launched his international concert tour which seeks to revive salon culture through the giving of 88 performances in a variety of intimate venues. This unique four-year tour continues to gain momentum with performances in private homes throughout the United States and distinguished venues all over the world.

Each private-home concert creates an unparalleled forum for dialogue between artist and listener, inviting audiences into a unique live performance experience. As a gift, each concert host receives a personalised piano work written for them using a compositional system to spell out musical notes to match their name. His world tour is scheduled to culminate next year with a concert at Carnegie Hall in New York City.

For Thursday's recital in Bangkok, Gallagher will perform a selection from his 88 customised preludes plus notable works played during his concert tour including his Prelude for HM King Bhumibol Adulyadej. Other items on the programme include Jaunpuri by Michael Harrison, selections from Chopin's Etudes and Sonata in B minor by Franz Liszt.


The concert is free of charge. Tickets can be requested through the Fund for Classical Music Promotion. Call 02-653-2593.
