Concert for the King

The Royal Bangkok Symphony Orchestra will present a dedicated concert to celebrate HM King Maha Vajiralongkorn Bodindradebayavarangkun's 65th birthday at the Thailand Cultural Centre, Ratchadaphisek Road, on July 15 at 8pm.

Titled the "Royal Celebration Concert: Stefan Vladar Plays Schumann", the concert will open with the world premiere of Sinfonia Siamindra written by Thai composer Narongrit Dhamabutra.

Returning to direct the RBSO on the evening programme, which also includes Brahms's Symphony No.2 In D Major Op 73 will be Canadian conducting maestro Charles Olivieri-Munroe, who is the artistic director and principal conductor of the Krakow Philharmonic Orchestra.

The concert will also be the Bangkok debut of Austrian soloist Stefan Vladar who will show his pianistic brilliance in a performance of Schumann's Piano Concerto In A Minor Op 54.

The multifaceted musical force studied at the Vienna University for Music and Arts with prominent piano professors and won the first prize in the VII Ludwig van Beethoven piano competition when he was only 20.

Two years ago, he celebrated his 50th birthday with a series of 13 concerts in which he displayed his admirably diverse artistic scope as a soloist, conductor, accompanist and chamber-musician.

He has been appointed chief conductor and artistic director of the Vienna Chamber Orchestra since 2008 and has become a regular participant in some of the world's most prestigious festivals.

Tickets cost 500, 1,000, 1,500, 2,000 and 2,500 baht (half prices for students) and can be purchased from Thai Ticket Major booths (visit thaiticketmajor.com or call 02-262-3456).
