PLEASE NOTE: OWING TO CONDUCTOR'S ILLNESS, CONCERT HAS BEEN MOVED TO FEBRUARY 17

Thailand's acclaimed youth orchestra, the Siam Sinfonietta, is well known around the world, having won five international main awards, including three at festivals in Carnegie Hall. It's particularly known for its interpretations of Mahler symphonies, having performed them in the Berlin Konzerthaus, the Musikverein Vienna, the Prinz Regententheater Munich as well as on numerous occasions at the Thailand Cultural Center and Suryadhep Hall.

In its ninth season the Sinfonietta returns to the first Mahler symphony it ever tackled, No. 4, first played in its third season. The most delicate, even Mozartian, of Mahler's symphonies, this work nevertheless probes all the mysteries of love and death, though from a childlike viewpoint that culminates in the final song, A Child's Vision of Heaven, sung by soprano Barbara Zion.

A bonus in the concert will be the world premiere of Somtow's orchestration of Richard Strauss's "fifth last song", Malven, perhaps the last composition Strauss wrote (for voice and piano.) It is a fascinating work alongside the famous "four last songs" that all music lovers know.

With tickets and 200 and 500 baht, this concert is priced to attract audiences who may be coming to Mahler's work for the first time. For our special guests who want to contribute more to this young orchestra's expenses, we offer VIP tickets at 2000 baht. Each VIP ticket holder will receive a special gift: a limited edition CD of the Siam Sinfonietta's performance of Mahler's First Symphony, edited from performances in Germany in Berlin, Dresden, and Munich - performances which drew standing ovations from packed houses.
