Masterpieces of the Magyar

Life, James Keller, Published on 14/05/2024

» Supported by B.Grimm, the Royal Bangkok Symphony Orchestra (RBSO) gave a dedicated concert late last month at the Thailand Cultural Centre to mark the 155th anniversary of formal diplomatic relations between Thailand, Austria and Hungary. Many ambassadors were in attendance for this important historical event in the social calendar, including HE Dr Sándor Sipos of the Embassy of Hungary. The emphasis was, in fact, wholly on the music of the Magyar people, featuring top-drawer Hungarian violinist Vilmos Oláh and compatriot conductor Andrea Daru from Budapest. That culture certainly boasts earthy music of the most profound emotional depth, and indeed, the programming for this concert was an absolute delight for the aural senses, opening with the glorious Les Préludes by Franz Liszt.

Epic soundtracks come to life

Life, James Keller, Published on 16/04/2024

» The Royal Bangkok Symphony Orchestra's increasing reputation for hitting the winning formula to draw in audiences was further boosted recently at the Thailand Cultural Centre where, for two consecutive nights, they performed to a completely packed house. Supported by the Tourism Authority of Thailand and B.Grimm, tickets for "Hollywood Soundtracks By Hans Zimmer" had sold out weeks in advance and a second show was added due to demand. The massive concert hall is not easy to fill on any occasion, so the RBSO should feel proud to have achieved this two nights running.

A harmonious blend

Life, James Keller, Published on 26/12/2023

» A highly energised Royal Bangkok Symphony Orchestra rounded off a hugely successful 2023 concert season mid-December with a cleverly conceived and designed programme titled "Orient Et Occident", with each performance alternating between compositions by Western and Eastern composers. By now, frequent visiting English conductor Douglas Bostock certainly knows how to inspire this orchestra to the very best of its abilities, and the opening La Princesse Jaune Overture by Camille Saint-Saëns was duly performed with a delightfully assured élan. The utterly charming faux-exoticism which the composer conjures was played with innocent, abundant joy, whilst a central lush string section showed off those particular ranks in an extremely positive light.
