The Thailand Philharmonic Orchestra combines crossover magic with one of the most honored symphonic works in the repertoire for their next two performances on Friday, August 3 at 7PM and Saturday, August 4 at 4PM in Prince Mahidol Hall.
The concert begins with the works of American performer and composer Adam Rapa. A dynamic star of the crossover trumpet, Rapa has become widely known for the excitement, energy and enthusiasm he brings to stages around the world. His music is both technically brilliant and accessible without loosing innovation and the power of a beautiful and pure trumpet sound. Critics have hailed his work as “a blast” and as “musical extravaganza”. Rapa will perform original compositions that bridge the gap between the pop and the classical worlds.
On the other hand, Brahms’ Symphony No. 4 sits comfortably for many dacades as one of the beloved symphonic pieces in the world. As a traditionalist Brahms used his formidable technical skills to craft expressive yet strongly classical works without the need for external influences.
Here is a chance to see and hear the old with the new! Carefully managed by the brilliant and long-time guest conductor Dariusz Mikulski.
