After a long pause the Thailand Phil returns to Prince Mahidol Hall just in time to finish its’ fifteenth season in exuberant form. The program begins gently with Elgar’s Serenade for Strings. The Serenade was one of Elgar’s favorite works; noteworthy as it is also one of his earliest. Elgar began his career as a violist and his knowledge of string performance served him well as he wrote the Serenade. It has become a favorite in the repertoire.

The program gains momentum with a virtuosic performance of Haydn’s Trumpet Concerto by our own principal trumpet Nitiphum Bamrungbanthum. Nitiphum has achieved international success as a trumpet soloist and orchestral performer. This will be his second solo appearance with the Thailand Phil, this time performing Haydn’s classic Trumpet Concerto.

The afternoon finishes triumphantly with Beethoven’s Seventh Symphony. Beethoven called this work “one of my happiest products”. He premiered the work 1813 in war-torn Vienna as encouragement to wounded soldiers, and also in celebration of an impending victory over Napolean. Thailand Phil offers it here in similar spirit: as encouragement to those who have battled COVID, and a celebration of a bright future.

Join the Thailand Phil’s celebration of past achievements and a happy future on 12 September at 4:00 pm in Prince Mahidol Hall.
