Concert features music of Monteverdi, Rossini, Vivaldi, and Schumann
Bangkok, 25 November 2020 — Opera Siam and Siam Sinfonietta are delighted to announce a sequel to last month’s sold-out performance of its Eroica concert, following up with an even more variegated and melodious program on Saturday, November 28, starting at 7.30pm at the Banyan Tree Grand Ballroom. Somtow Sucharitkul will conduct the concert.
The combination of being really up close with a symphony orchestra, and experiencing a variety of music both symphonic and choral, plus the availability of Banyan Tree’s premium mixologist and delicious light meals engendered remarkable feedback from those in attendance.
This time a scintillating and romantic evening of music by the Siam Sinfonietta is about two of humanity’s most emotional preoccupations, Love and War. It begins in the baroque era with excerpts from Monteverdi’s groundbreaking 17th Century masterpiece Songs of Love and War sung by the Calliope Chamber Choir, and continues with Vivaldi’s tuneful Mandolin Concerto played by Charapinyo, one of the winners of Siam Sinfonietta’s “Virtual Virtuoso” competition.
The second half of the program is music from the romantic period. War is represented by Rossini’s exciting William Tell Overture, with its iconic “Lone Ranger” theme. Love is from Schumann’s passionate Third Symphony, nicknamed the Rhenish. Those lucky enough to attend should even more surprises.
The Banyan Tree’s cash bar, featuring one of its premier mixologists, starts serving from 6pm and the audience will be seated at 7:30. And yes — guests can take their glass of wine or cocktail into the concert!
