Bangkok Post - - LIFE | HAPPENING - Visit thai­land­

The Thai­land Phil­har­monic Orches­tra will close its 12th orches­tral sea­son with the “Ode To Joy” con­cert to re­flect on the many pos­i­tive ex­pe­ri­ences and spe­cial mo­ments achieved through­out the year, at Mahi­dol Univer­sity’s Prince Mahi­dol Hall, Salaya cam­pus, Fri­day at 7pm and Sat­ur­day at 4pm.

Prin­ci­pal guest con­duc­tor Gundi Emils­son will di­rect the orches­tra in a pair­ing of per­haps the most fa­mous sym­phonic piece ever writ­ten, Beethoven’s Sym­phony No.9 In D Mi­nor, Op 125, as well as Ig­naz Moscheles’ rarely heard gem Dou­ble Con­certo For Flute, Oboe And Orches­tra. Known as Ode To Joy from the Friedrich Schiller poem that in­spired its spec­tac­u­lar fi­nal move­ment, the Ninth is Beethoven’s way of ex­press­ing hope for a bet­ter world and a call to unite hu­mankind in the spirit Giuseppe Nova. of the com­mon good. The mu­sic is a spir­i­tual jour­ney from dark­ness to light, and never fails to stir an emo­tional re­sponse.

To en­er­gise this fi­nale, TPO wel­comes back two bril­liant Euro­pean vir­tu­osos, flautist Giuseppe Nova and oboist Christoph Hart­mann, to per­form the mini-con­certo for two in­stru­ments by Moscheles. Writ­ten in 1830 as a dis­play of in­stru­men­tal tech­nique and lyri­cism, the con­certo is only one of a few orches­tral works that com­bine the higher wind in­stru­ments with skill and in­ge­nu­ity.

Tick­ets cost 300 and 500 baht (100 baht for stu­dents up to bach­e­lor’s de­gree). For reser­va­tions, visit tha­i­tick­et­ma­ or call 02-849-6565/6 ext 6603 and 6609. Christoph Hart­mann.
