World Premiere of cello concerto No. 2 «Sirimadi» with Pi-Chin Chien and the Thailand Philharmonic Orchestra. The concerts were postponed because of the floods.

This fall the Swiss Embassy in Thailand is celebrating 80 years of diplomatic relationship between the two countries. As part of this celebration a new cello concerto written for the «Thailand Philharmonic Orchestra» has its world premiere. The approximately 25-minute work in one movement is inspired by the Thai tale about the Queen Sirimadi. Soloist will be Pi-Chin Chien and the orchestra will be conducted by Claude Villaret. The concerts were postponed and are now expected on in 2012.
