ABOUT THIS ALBUM


Album Notes
The Siam Sinfonietta, one of Asia's acclaimed youth ensembles, frequently premieres the works of contemporary Thai composers. This album is a compilation of works by some of the most unusual composers in the region.

Two of Trisdee na Patalung's tone poems open the album. "Perception" is a profound interior monologue based on a simple diatonic scale. It first premiered at the Bayreuth "Young Artists Festival". The dramatic "Moha" describes ten years of Thailand's turbulent political history in ten minutes. It premiered in Carnegie Hall when the Siam Sinfonietta toured there in 2013.

Nattapong Yutthanasirikul is the youngest of the composers on the album. "Canopus" is a piece from his collection "ABC of the Universe" in which each movement is named after one of the stars. Its science fictional colors contrast with "Himavanta", a description of the mythical forest at the foothills of the abode of the Gods in Buddhist cosmology. "Himavanta" also premiered at the Bayreuth Young Artists Festvial in 2015.

Pantawit Kiangsiri has been making a name for himself in film music and the two selections here are "Wings of Love", an early piece first premiered at "The Love Concert" in Thailand. "Naresuan Suite" is from music composed for the film Naresuan V, an epic Thai historical drama.

All three of these composers were at one time students of Thailand's most prominent composer, Somtow Sucharitkul, winner of the 2017 European Cultural Achievement Award. The album closes with a suite from Somtow's ballet "Suriyothai", which deals with culture clash in 16th Century Southeast Asia - both between European and Asian aesthetics and between the rival kingdoms of Ayudhya and Pegu. This is a live performance from the Siam Sinfonietta's 2013 tour of Berlin, Munich and Dresden.
