History

The Thailand Philharmonic Orchestra (TPO) The Thailand Philharmonic Orchestra (TPO) gave its inaugural performance at the Royal Thailand Navy Auditorium on 23 June 2005, in a gala concert for the International Trumpet Guild Conference. Over its first 11 seasons the TPO has consistently impressed and inspired audiences with its excellent performances. Many highly regarded conductors have led the TPO including Gudni Emilsson, Claude Villaret, Alfonso Scarano, Jamie Phillips, Dariusz Mikulski, Delta David Gier, Stefan Willich, Jose Luis-Novo, Ligia Amadio, Zhang Guoyong, Alkis Baltas, Prateep Suphanrojn, Jeffery Meyer and many more. Soloists from around the world regularly join the TPO for performances and have praised the orchestra for its growth and development in such a short period of time. Those guests have included Jens Lindemann, Eri Nakagawa, Lambis Vassiliadis, Boris Brovtsyn, Martin Kasik, Tomas Strasil, Reinhold Friedrich, Cristina Bojin, Karina Di 2

Virgilio, Mischa Maisky, Yoon Jin Kim, Kwanchanok Pongpairoj, Christopher Espenschied, Dimitri Ashkenazy, Paul Cesarczyk, Serouj Kradjian, Robyn Schulkowsky, Lucia Aliberti, Wolfram Schmitt-Leonardy, Peter Bruns, Tapalin Charoensook, Ekachai Jearakul, Shyen Lee, Aiman Musakhodzhaeva, Henri Bok, and Christoph Hartmann among others. The first International appearance by TPO occurred in October 2009 when the Japanese Association of Orchestras extended the invitation to perform at the Asian Orchestras Festival in the Tokyo Opera City Concert Hall. In the same year the Royal Thai Government invited TPO to play at the gala concert for the 15th ASEAN Summit held in Cha-Am in front of 10 Prime Ministers from the 10 ASEAN countries and six from China, India, Japan, South Korea, Australia and New Zealand. TPO has continued its international touring with concerts in Tokyo, Japan and Auckland, New Zealand


in 2012, Vientiane, Laos in 2013 and Myanmar in 2016. On 29 September 2010, TPO had the distinct honor to give a command performance for HM King Bhumibol Adulyadej and HRH Princess Maha Chakri Sirindhorn at the Royal Medical College Auditorium, Siriraj Hospital. In the concert the TPO paid tribute to His Majesty’s considerable musical talent. The concert served to honor the occasion of the 37th Anniversary of a special concert that His Majesty played for students at the Royal Medical College’s auditorium on 29 September 1973. The current 2016-2017 season is Gudni Emilsson’s twelfth season as Chief Conductor of the TPO. He continues the work of attracting a loyal and appreciative following in Thailand, while helping the TPO to build a reputation for performing excellence. Its annual season schedule of more than 70 performances draws from over three centuries of orchestral

repertoire as well as chamber, contemporary and speciallycommissioned new music. The TPO is proud to have the patronage of the Royal Thai Government and Mahidol University and enjoys a burgeoning multicultural tradition. The 95-member symphony orchestra is made up of musicians from more than 15 nations. The TPO has been active in recording both traditional Thai songs and new works from internationally recognized composers, and has produced 10 CDs of those works. 2016-2017 marks the twelfth season for the TPO, and will be highlighted by a performance of over 80 concerts per year including season and special concerts, as well as a performance tour of ASEAN countries. Last but not the least, TPO would like to express our most sincere gratitude for the support of all our generous patrons and loyal fans. 3

The TPO’s twelfth season is set for an amazing tribute and acknowledgement of various styles of music including classical, traditional, modern, and jazz. International guest performers and conductors from all over the world will take part in the series of concerts in the 2016-2017 season. Therefore, the music that we will experience throughout the season will have influences from America, China, Russia, Thai, and many more. Among the 30 concerts that will inspire new musicians as well as warm the hearts of all music-lovers, the highlights will be the Thailand International Jazz Conference 2017, the Japan Thailand Connections - A 60 Year Celebration, and the fifth Jean Marie Londiex International Saxophone Competition.

Khunying Patama Leeswadtrakul, Chairman of the Board of Directors Thailand Philharmonic Orchestra


Assoc. Prof. Dr. Sugree Charoensook Music Director The 12th season of the Thailand Philharmonic Orchestra marks a milestone in the orchestra’s development, as the TPO advances strongly into their second decade of music making. Each and every season the TPO has grown in size, performance ability, and in recognition both within Thailand and throughout the region. The impressive 2,016-seat Prince Mahidol Hall features the latest state-of-the-art acoustic design and architecture that has made it one of the landmarks of Thailand now and into the future. TPO is proud to perform at the Prince Mahidol Hall throughout the season, with the generous support of Mahidol University. The 12th TPO season will again see a mix of soloists from overseas as well as the very best young musicians Thailand has developed at home. I am sure the artistry of all the soloists featured this season will inspire you each and every concert. A mixture of internationally renowned musicians and homegrown excellence is vital for the future of classical music performance in Thailand. We are always grateful for the support of embassies and international organizations that support TPO as we take part to celebrate and honor significance dates, such as national days or composers’ anniversaries through

our programs. The TPO is very appreciative for all the generous support of our sponsors and friends. The TPO continues to take part in national events at the invitation of the Royal Thai Government and we are delighted that they see the TPO as an asset to the country. Their support is much appreciated. In the past seasons, TPO has been privileged to travel as artistic ambassadors to Japan, New Zealand, Laos, and Myanmar. More international trips are planned for this, the 12th season, and will help bring TPO into the world stage. The desire of TPO is to be a role model for all young musicians in Thailand as they strive towards an international standard of excellence in Classical music. In this respect, TPO is working closely with the College of Music, Mahidol University in welcoming students throughout Thailand under the Youth Development through Classical Music Appreciation Scholarship every week to share the knowledge and experience of listening to classical music. I hope you will enjoy the wonderful programs that await you and we look forward to seeing you each and every week. Assoc. Prof. Dr. Sugree Charoensook, Music Director Thailand Philharmonic Orchestra 5

Foreword

Dr. Narong Prangcharoen Composer in Residence It is my great honor to be a Composer in Residence for Thailand Philharmonic Orchestra for the 12th Season. After moving to United States, I have had many opportunities, both in the United States and internationally, to meet and work with many well-known such great musicians as conductors Carl St. Clair, Carlos Kalmar, Mikhail Pletnev, Osmo Vanska; and such high-standard orchestras as the Baltimore Symphony Orchestra, the Melbourne Symphony Orchestra, the Minnesota Orchestra, the Oregon Symphony Orchestra, the Pacific Symphony Orchestra, the Tokyo Philharmonic Orchestra. Some of my achievements, up to 2016, include many awards such as the prestigious Guggenheim Fellowship, and the Barlow Prize, Sugree Charoensook Foundation Award. From many encountered with Thailand Philharmonic Orchestra in the past, I would not hesitate to say that the Thailand Philharmonic Orchestra is one of the great orchestra in the world especially the mission to support music of our time. Being invited to be a composer in residence for Thailand Philharmonic Orchestra (TPO) for a fourth time is a great honor for me. It’s really a great opportunity for me to finally have more chances to be back home in Thailand to work with 8

With my International experience, and once hailed by Los Angeles Times: “Composer with a gift to create orchestra color”, I’m positive that my residency with the TPO would allow me to expand and create the finest orchestral experiences of the music lovers community in Salaya and surrounding areas to a wider perception with a colorful music. I would like to thank everybody who involved with the TPO for their warm welcome me as a composer in residence. Moreover, I would like to thank all the audiences for their gracious support by helping the living composers to have the freedom to create the arts.
