Young and promising pianist Thanat Vijitthanasarn returns to the stage in a concert to raise funds for the Gift of Life Foundation, at Sala Sudasiri Sobha on Aug 18.
His piano recital is part of the "Sunday 4 O'Clock at Sala Sudasiri Sobha" concert series and the programme will start with an arrangement of HM the King's composition Love At Sundown performed by renowned contemporary pianist Nat Yontararak.
The rest of the programme will feature popular classical compositions including Chopin's Etudes Opus 10, No.1-4, Etude Opus 25, No.11 "Winterwind" and Scherzo No.2 in B Flat Minor Opus 31, Brahms' Sonata No.2 in F-sharp Minor Opus 2, Beethoven's Moonlight Sonata Opus 27, No.2 in C-sharp minor and Liszt's Hungarian Rhapsody No.12.
Thanat, 16, started piano lessons at the age of six while at St Stephen's International School, Bangkok, where he took ABRSM graded exams and was awarded mostly distinctions.
He made it to the final round of the 8th Bangkok Chopin Piano Competition in 2008 and won the third prize from the 1st Siam International Piano Competition in 2009. After that he continued his piano studies with Prof Nat, with whom he later had a chance to perform in Italy and Croatia.
The trip included several concerts and lessons that significantly enhanced his playing.
Thanat won the Best Polonaise prize from the 4th Asean International Chopin Piano Competition held in Kuala Lumpur in 2010. The most recent competition he took part in was the Royal Northern College of Music's prestigious James Mottram International Piano Competition in 2012. Tickets cost 500 baht. Seats are limited.
