RBSO and cellist Apichai Leamthong do Tchaikovsky

The Royal Bangkok Symphony Orchestra will present a big Tchaikovsky evening for the highly regarded cellist Apichai Leamthong in the Small Hall of Thailand Cultural Centre, Ratchadaphisek Road, this Friday starting at 7.30pm.

This is the RBSO's second concert of the 2017 season and will open with Elgar’s Salut d’Amour. Apichai will then perform Tchaikovsky’s Variations On A Rococo Theme For Cello And Orchestra Op 33 and the Andante Cantabile For Cello And String Orchestra In B Major Op 11 with the orchestra. The night will conclude with Beethoven's Symphony No.7 In A Major Op 92.

Apichai has long been a familiar and prominent figure in the classical music scene in Thailand, appearing regularly as soloist and a chamber musician in addition to his role as assistant principal cellist of the RBSO itself.

A founding member of the Bangkok String Quartet, he has notably helped to develop levels of excellence in this specialised field, and as an educator holds the position of director of undergraduate studies at Rangsit University Conservatory of Music.

Directing the orchestra will be Japanese conductor Hide Shindori, who brought inspiration and excitement to the podium and orchestra on his last visit here in late 2015.

Initially training as a pianist, he subsequently studied the art-of-the-baton with A-list conductors. He also won the silver medal at the fifth Grzegorz Fitelberg International Competition for Conductors.

Tickets cost 500, 800 and 1,000 baht (50% discounts for students) and can be purchased from Thai Ticket Major booths (visit www.thaiticketmajor.com and 02-262-3456).
