-->«Sirimadi» for Violoncello and Orchestra

Bangkok, Music Auditorium (MACM Hall)

Pi-Chin Chien, Violoncello, Thailand Philharmonic Orchestra, conducted by Claude Villaret

2011 the Swiss Embassy in Thailand was celebrating 80 years of diplomatic relationship between the two countries. As part of this celebration a new piece for cello and orchestra, written for the «Thailand Philharmonic Orchestra» has its world premiere. The two concerts were postponed because of the floods in fall 2011, and will be now in June 2012. 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.
