Prince Mahidol Hall
One of Beethoven‘s all-time favorites, the Seventh Symphony is grand, majestic, and relentlessly cheerful. It seems like the symphony wants to invite you to dance to it at nearly every moment, even in its most somber minute. The first movement opens with the grandest and longest of Beethoven‘s symphonic introduction, which leads to the joyful fast dance. The second, reminds one of a funeral march, is about adding up musical layers to the stable harmony and steady rhythm, giving you an emotionful listening experience. The third movement is fast and mercurial, drastically contrast to the previous movement. The finale is an invitation to dance along with the majestically joyful music.
The concert of the Thailand Philharmonic Orchestra (TPO), under the baton of Chief Conductor Gudni A. Emilsson, also features a guest flute soloist, Luisa Sello, who will perform the famous French flute works, including Camille Saint Saens’ Romance Op.37 and Cecile Chaminade’s Concertino Op.107. Luisa Sello is one of the surprising personalities of contemporary art, an elegant flautist and one of the most applauded interpreters of cultured music. She has performed throughout Europe, the United States, South America, Russian and Asian countries, as a ‘unique artist with an exceptional versatility and enchanting charm which is able to reach the soul of each listener leaving behind an unforgettable emotion’.
It will be a very tuneful evening!
