Making history on the piano

Italian virtuoso pianist Christian Leotta returns to Bangkok to perform an all Beethoven programme with the Royal Bangkok Symphony Orchestra under the baton of Vanich Potavanich at the Thailand Cultural Centre, Ratchadaphisek Road, on Thursday at 7.30pm.

Presented in the framework of the Italian Festival in Thailand 2017 by the Embassy of Italy, the 37-year-old musician will complete the entire cycle of the 5 Beethoven's Piano Concertos with Piano Concerts No.1, No.2 and No.4. Last year he performed Piano Concerts No.3 and No.5 with the RBSO. This will mark an exceptional and historical first time in Thailand and probably Southeast Asia.

If in the first and in the second Piano Concertos the brio and the youthful fervour prevail, in the fourth Piano Concerto, considered by many as the most sublime example of this form, maestro Leotta will take us to the full Romanticism thanks to one of the greatest masterpieces of all time, written in the same years of the famous Piano Sonatas Waldstein and Appassionata.

Leotta has worked with major orchestras, regularly performing in important theatres and concert halls such as the Philharmonie at the Gasteig in Munich, the Konzerthaus of Vienna, the Tonhalle of Zurich, the Sala Verdi and the Auditorium of Milan, the Salle Claude-Champagne of Montreal, and the Great Hall at the Bunka Kaikan Theatre of Tokyo.

He recently completed the fifth and final volume of his recordings of the complete 32 Beethoven Piano Sonatas and his constant international touring as both a recitalist and concerto soloist.
