Official description

Virtuoso violinist and conductor Dmitry Sitkovetsky is making a welcome return to the Kingdom to take part in an all-Mozart programme with the Bangkok Symphony Orchestra (BSO) next month.

Held as part of the BSO Foundation’s ongoing “Great Artists” concert series, the “Dmitry Sitkovetsky Plays Mozart” concert will take place at the Thailand Cultural Centre on August 8, starting at 8pm.

The programme will open with the turbulent-then-ecstatic overture to Don Giovanni, followed by Violin Concerto No. 5 In A-Major (often referred to as Mozart’s Turkish Concerto because of his use of exotic percussive effects and chromatic crescendos). The concert will conclude with Symphony No. 40 In G-Minor, still one of the most potent and universally loved in the entire Mozart repertoire.

Tickets for the concert cost 400-2,000 baht and can be purchased from Thai Ticket Major (visit www.thaiticketmajor.com).

Violinist Dmitry Sitkovetsky is to perform with the BSO in Bangkok early next month.

Virtuoso violinist and conductor Dmitry Sitkovetsky is making a welcome return to the Kingdom to take part in an all-Mozart programme with the Bangkok Symphony Orchestra (BSO) next month.

Held as part of the BSO Foundation’s ongoing “Great Artists” concert series, the “Dmitry Sitkovetsky Plays Mozart” concert will take place at the Thailand Cultural Centre on August 8, starting at 8pm.

The programme will open with the turbulent-then-ecstatic overture to Don Giovanni, followed by Violin Concerto No. 5 In A-Major (often referred to as Mozart’s Turkish Concerto because of his use of exotic percussive effects and chromatic crescendos). The concert will conclude with Symphony No. 40 In G-Minor, still one of the most potent and universally loved in the entire Mozart repertoire.

The 60-year-old Sitkovetsky has appeared as a soloist with some of the world’s greatest orchestras including the Berlin Philharmonic, New York Philharmonic, Royal Concertgebouw, Leipzig Gewandhaus and Chicago Symphony. His conducting resume is likewise extensive, including the position of music director of the Greensboro Symphony Orchestra in the US since 2003. Lengthy conducting posts have also been held with the Russian State Orchestra and the Ulster Orchestra in North Ireland, whilst his participation in high-profile festivals in Salzburg, Lucerne, Edinburgh, Verbier and Newport further testifies to a formidable all-round musicianship.

The foundations of his mastery were laid at the Moscow Conservatory before the Azerbaijan-born violinist emigrated to the US in 1977, after which he continued his studies at New York’s famous Julliard School.

Tickets for the concert cost 400-2,000 baht and can be purchased from Thai Ticket Major (visit www.thaiticketmajor.com).
