“Phenomenon” by Dr.Narong Prangcharoen, Dean of College of Music, Mahidol University and Thailand Phil’s Composer in Residence, to be performed by RTÉ Concert Orchestra – Dublin, Ireland

“Phenomenon” by Thai composer Narong Prangcharoen (born 1973), the first work by a composer from Thailand to be performed at an NSO concert, Dublin Friday April 27th 7.30pm

The music of Thai composer Narong Prangcharoen has been called ‘absolutely captivating’ (Chicago Sun Times) and his award-winning 2004 work Phenomenon testifies to the validity of that claim. Inspired by ‘mysterious and unexplainable natural phenomena’, it is brilliant orchestral display of chiaroscuro contrasts in timbre and dynamics.
