Bangkok Post - - LIFE | HAPPENING - Visit thai­land­phil.com.

Global tal­ents in the field of jazz will be per­form­ing with Thai­land Phil­har­monic Or­ches­tra dur­ing the “Italy And TIJC” con­cert at Mahi­dol Univer­sity’s Prince Mahi­dol Hall, Salaya cam­pus, this Fri­day at 7pm and Sat­ur­day at 4pm.

Held in col­lab­o­ra­tion with the Ital­ian Embassy and the Thai­land In­ter­na­tional Jazz Con­fer­ence 2018, the con­cert will fea­ture guest artists Fabrizio Bosso and lo­cal favourites Pomelo Town, who will come with se­lected mu­sic to sat­isfy both jazz afi­ciona­dos and clas­si­cal lis­ten­ers.

The con­cert will start with the mu­sic of the late King Bhu­mi­bol Adulyadej, who left a rich mu­si­cal le­gacy that will never di­min­ish in the hearts of Thai peo­ple. The pro­gramme will in­clude jazz stan­dards by the leg­endary Duke Elling­ton, Ge­orge Gersh­win and Hoagy Carmichael.

Sym­phonic jazz will be rep­re­sented by Shostakovich’s el­e­gant Jazz Suite No.2, which fea­tures one of the most recog­nis­able and tune­ful waltzes of the 20th cen­tury. Other high­lights are the col­lab­o­ra­tion be­tween the TPO and Thai jazz group Pomelo Town.

To­gether, they bring tra­di­tional north­ern Thai mu­sic such as Noi Jai Ya and Say Lay Mao to life. These sig­na­ture Pomelo Town works will be re-ar­ranged for the per­for­mance with the sym­phony or­ches­tra by Narong Prangcharoen.

Known for blend­ing new sounds with a clas­sic style, award-win­ning trum­peter and record­ing artist Fabrizio Bosso acts as Ital­ian rep­re­sen­ta­tive in this im­por­tant year mark­ing 150 years of diplo­matic re­la­tions be­tween Thai­land and Italy. Brazil­ian guest con­duc­tor Li­gia Ama­dio will con­duct both shows.
