ABOUT THIS ALBUM


Album Notes
Thailand's internationally acclaimed youth orchestra, the Siam Sinfonietta, will perform Mahler's 9th Symphony on April 8, becoming the first youth orchestra in the region to tackle this great work, considered by many to be "the last true symphony".

The concert takes place in an exciting new state of the art venue located in Rangsit, brainchild of the visionary Dr. Arthit Ourairat. As the first big symphonic repertoire to be presented there, the concert is designed to showcase the theatre's brilliant new design and acoustics. In order to provide access for the many Bangkok fans of the Siam Sinfonietta and Somtow Sucharitkul's Mahler initiative, there will be bus pickups and deliveries to a central Bangkok location.

The Siam Sinfonietta is currently considered one of the premier youth orchestras in the world, having one first prize in the Musikverein in Vienna in 2011 and subsequently performing to standing ovations in the Berlin Konzerthaus, Carnegie Hall, Disney Hall, the Klementinum in Prague, the Emirates Palace in Abu Dhabi, and numerous other venues in Thailand and Internationally.

This year, the orchestra has been invited to perform at the Bayreuth Youth Festival and the Sydney International Music Festival.

Somtow Sucharitkul is one of Asia's leading exponents of Mahler's work. "Somtow has instilled in his forces the very essence of Mahler" says notable review Robert Markow in Audio Review magazine. Frederic Chaslin of the Vienna State Opera has said, "He is one of the only Asians who really understands Mahler." Somtow conducted the Thai premiere of Mahler 9 in 2009, and was rewarded with the gift of a baton used by Bernstein the last time he conducted the work, from a member of the International Mahler Society.
