  3. Crossing Over Adam Rapa is one of the most celebrated crossover trumpet artists in the world today. Listen to him with TPO and conductor Dariusz Mikulski as they push the boundaries and blur the lines between classical and jazz. Concerts: 3 August 2018 / 7.00 p.m. / PMH (Pre-Concert Talk 6.15 p.m.) 4 August 2018 / 4.00 p.m. / PMH (Pre-Concert Talk 3.15 p.m.) Conductor: Dariusz Mikulski Soloist: Adam Rapa, Trumpet Programs: Thai Traditional Music Works for trumpet arranged by Adam Rapa Johannes Brahms: Symphony No. 4, Op. 98 Synopsis: 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.

  9. I'm not sure - I will check this evening :) You might be right - but Bangkok loves Rachmaninoff Piano Concertos - so we have to slip the brave works in with the popular ones. Appreciate your support!
  10. Transfigured Night Schoenberg’s Verklärte Nacht (Transfigured Night) stands as one of his most important early works. Join TPO and Chief Conductor Alfonso Scarano for performances of this and the Suite “From the House of the Dead” by Leoš Janáček. Taiwanese piano soloist Ting-Chia Hsu joins for a performance of Rachmaninoff’s Piano Concerto No. 3. Concerts: 13 July 2018 / 7.00 p.m. / PMH (Pre-Concert Talk 6.15 p.m.) 14 July 2018 / 4.00 p.m. / PMH (Pre-Concert Talk 3.15 p.m.) Conductor: Alfonso Scarano Soloist: Ting-Chia Hsu, Piano Programs: Thai Traditional Music Sergei Rachmaninoff: Piano Concerto No. 3 in D minor, Op. 30 Arnold Schoenberg: Verklärte Nacht, Op. 4 Leoš Janáček: Suite “From the House of the Dead” Synopsis: Bringing talent from the musical nation of Taiwan continues in concerts titled “Transfigured Night” on July 13 at 7 PM and July 14 at 4 PM. Pianist Ting-Chia Hsu returns to Thailand with Rachmaninoff’s Third Piano Concerto and Alfonso Scarano leads the orchestra in Schoenberg’s Transfigured Night, and Janacek’s Suite from the “House of the Dead.” For those audiences who view Schoenberg’s modernist experiments with some displeasure, his early masterpiece Transfigured Night is a welcome contrast. Written just a month before the turn of the 20th century in December 1899, the work is romantic, expressive and reminiscent of the tone poems of Strauss and the symphonic works by Mahler. Janacek’s Suite from the “House of the Dead” is a three-movement piece based on themes from the composer’s last opera. Pianist Ting-Chia Hsu’s accomplishments speak for themselves: First Prize at Ville de Valence International Piano Competition (2016), First Prize at Anton Garcia Abril International Piano Competition, First Prize Taiwan Taichung Jazz International Piano Competition, Third Prize at Campillos International Piano Competition. In 2015 he debuted with the Thailand Philharmonic Orchestra with Liszt’s Piano Concerto no. 2 and returns to perform one of the great 20th century concertos: Rachmaninoff’s Third, a piece recognized as the Russian master’s greatest piano concerto and a favorite with audiences around the world.
