Official description

The Bangkok Symphony Orchestra is holding the “Royal Celebration Concert” to mark His Majesty King Bhumibol Adulyadej’s 88th birthday at the Main Hall of the Thailand Cultural Centre, Ratchadaphisek Road, on Dec 8 at 8pm.

The concert will begin with an arrangement of one of His Majesty’s own masterly compositions, Sweet Words, which the monarch wrote in 1950. Tchaikovsky’s impassioned Symphony No.4 In F Minor Op 36, another audience favourite, will complete the programme.

Set to perform the incomparable Beethoven’s Violin Concerto In D Major Op 61 will be the 27-year-old South Korean violinist Ye-Eun Choi, who had a high-profile North American tour with German violinist Anne-Sophie Mutter and other talented younger generation performers last year.

In 2007, Choi was nominated a “Rising Star” by the American Symphony Orchestra League and went on to make her debut with the New York Philharmonic and Alan Gilbert in 2009.

She has worked with a host of other conducting luminaries as well as many pre-eminent orchestras including the Royal Philharmonic Orchestra, NHK Symphony Orchestra, Tokyo Symphony Orchestra, Stuttgart Philharmonic Orchestra and Norrköping Symphony Orchestra.

Choi will be joined on stage by Canadian conductor Charles Olivieri-Munroe who will be making his second visit to work with the BSO.
