One of the world’s great flautists is to join the Thailand Philharmonic Orchestra for two performances in Bangkok this week.
Giuseppe Nova will play Saverio Mercadante’s Flute Concerto in E minor Op. 57, while the TPO is to recite Rachmaninov’s Symphony No. 2 In E minor, one of the last representations of Russian romanticism.
A graduate of both the Conservatorio Torino and Conservatoire Supérieur de Lyon, Nova’s career as a soloist has taken him to the world’s foremost concert halls. Italian newspaper il Giornale has lauded his “enlightened performance… extraordinary musical sense.”
“Amazing Rachmaninov” is scheduled for July 6 at 7 p.m. and July 7 at 4 p.m. at the Mahidol University’s College of Music. Tickets cost 300 and 500 baht (about US$9-16) or 100 baht (US$3) for students.
