Royal Celebration concert Jian Wang plays Dvorak

Chinese superstar cellist Jian Wang is joined by eminent Dutch conductor Hubert Soudant for the final classical concert of this year’s Great Artists Concert Series, which is firmly established as an essential centrepiece of Thailand’s cultural life as it now concludes its seventh groundbreaking year.
 
Dvořák’s Cello Concerto of 1895 is a ravishingly beautiful highlight of the entire romantic repertoire, imposing in structure and highly emotive throughout. A perennial audience favourite, top-ranking soloists likewise continue to regard this work as the apotheosis of the form – an ultimate platform for both technique and musicianship.
 
Jian Wang’s youthful talent was spotted by Isaac Stern, who duly encouraged further studies in the USA. This culminated in a triumphant debut at Carnegie Hall, launching an international career which has included a recording of the Brahms Double Concerto with the Berliner Philharmoniker, Claudio Abbado, and Gil Shaham.
 
The youthful genius Bizet’s ever-popular L’Arlésienne Suites Nos. 1 & 2 will showcase the Bangkok Symphony Orchestra’s forces under the sure direction of Hubert Soudant, a hugely experienced maestro of the opera house and concert hall. For the past decade he has enjoyed much adulation as Music Director of the Tokyo Symphony Orchestra.
 
In celebration of His Majesty the King of Thailand’s birthday, an arrangement of the joyful tune Love In Spring - one of his many wonderful compositions – will open this concert as the overture.
