Official description

Israel’s three top-ranking musicians and one of Thailand’s best-regarded classical vocalists will perform together in a celebratory concert being held to mark the six-decade-long friendly relationship that has existed between the two countries.

Organised by the Embassy of Israel and the Bangkok Symphony Orchestra Foundation, the “Thailand-Israel Gift of Music Concert” will be held at the Thailand Cultural Centre, Ratchadaphisek Road on June 5, starting at 8pm.

Stunning soprano Keren Hadar and acclaimed woodwind multi-instrumentalist Amir Gwirtzman will appear with their compatriot, maestro Shalev-Ad El, who will conduct the Bangkok Symphony Orchestra in its performance of a mixture of solo numbers and duets.

Israeli opera composer Meyerbeer’s overture to Alimelek will start the evening’s entertainment, followed by Hadar’s singing of Rossini’s Una Voce Pocofa and Bizet’s gypsy song Chanson Boheme.

Bass-baritone Kittinant Chinsamran will then join Hader for another favourite from Carmen, the Toredor Song. The pair will also do duets of Tonight from West Side Story and of appealing arrangements of compositions by His Majesty the King, including Candlelight Blues and Magic Beams.

Tickets for the concert cost 300, 700, 900, 1,200 and 1,500 baht and can be purchased from Thai Ticket Major booths (visit www.thaiticketmajor.com). For more information, phone the Bangkok Symphony Orchestra Foundation on 02-255-66178 or 02-254-4954.

Bass-baritone Kittinant Chinsamran will then join Hader for another favourite from Carmen, the Toredor Song. The pair will also do duets of Tonight from West Side Story and of appealing arrangements of compositions by His Majesty the King, including Candlelight Blues and Magic Beams.

Hadar’s solo spots will also include I Dreamed A Dream from Les Miserables, Israeli song Jerusalem Of Gold, and two timeless tunes by French diva Edith Piaf — Padam Padam and Mon Manege. Kittinant will give a solo rendition of The Impossible Dream from Man Of La Mancha. Hadar has studied in Berlin, funded by a special grant given to her by maestro Daniel Barenboim, and has been an Israel Cultural Excellence Foundation chosen artist since 2008.

As musical director of Israel’s highest-ranking chamber orchestra, Netanya Kibbutz, Shalev-Ad El is an accomplished harpsichord player who frequents some of the world’s most prestigious venues.

Gwirtzman is one of Israel’s most renowned saxophone players, but his appearance in Bangkok will showcase one of his rarer, specialist skills by playing the duduk, a traditionalArmenian instrument.

Kittinant, a finalist in the popular TV programme The Voice, has been praised for his velvety tone, beautiful timbre, and high professionalism.

He has studied with a veritable roll-call of operatic luminaries — amongst them Dame Kiri Te Kanawa, Sir Thomas Allen and Ann Murray.


Tickets for the concert cost 300, 700, 900, 1,200 and 1,500 baht and can be purchased from Thai Ticket Major booths (visit www.thaiticketmajor.com). For more information, phone the Bangkok Symphony Orchestra Foundation on 02-255-66178 or 02-254-4954.
