Official description

World acclaimed Polish pianist Tomasz Herbut will give a Bangkok debut concert held to commemorate the 91st birthday anniversary of HRH the late Princess Galyani Vadhana on Friday.

Organised by the Fund for Classical Music Promotion, in collaboration with the Department of Cultural Promotion, Ministry of Culture, the piano recital will see Tomasz fill the small hall of Thailand Cultural Centre on Ratchadaphisek Road with Chopin’s 14 mazurkas and four polonaises, at 7.30pm.

A professor from Berne University of the Arts in Switzerland, his adopted homeland, Tomasz possesses an extraordinarily wide spectrum of knowledge of both the Romantic literature for the piano and the Lied repertoire. His programmes encompass such forgotten composers as Lekeu, Zarebski, Paderewski as well as Chausson, Szymanowski and Bloch among others. In 1986 he was a prize winner of the XIX Festival of Young Soloists in Bordeaux, France, and a year later he was honoured by the city of Zurich with its Artist’s Award.

The maestro has performed in Japan, Korea, South American and in most European countries, including Switzerland where he has lived since 1984. He is a regular soloist, as well as a chamber music artist, at many international festivals.

There is no admission fee to the concert but reservations are required by calling 02-653-2593.
