D&M Music Studio presents a piano recital by Simon Callaghan, a Steinway Artist from the UK, at Goethe Institut on Nov 3 at 7.30pm.
British pianist Simon Callaghan will give his debut Bangkok performance at Goethe Institut on Nov 3 at 7.30pm.
The evening programme will feature Beethoven's Sonata In C-Minor _ Pathetique, Op 13, Chopin's Variations On La Ci Darem La Mano, Op 2, Prokofiev's Sonata No.1 In F-Minor, Op 1, Scriabin's Trois Morceaux, Op 2, and Schubert's Fantasy In C _ Wanderer, D760.
Elected a Steinway Artist last year, Simon's performances both in prestigious concert halls and in the recording studio have earned him a reputation as an exciting young artist of the new generation who is in demand internationally as a soloist and as a chamber musician.
His recent schedule has included appearances at Wigmore Hall, Bridgewater Hall, Birmingham Symphony Hall, Liverpool Philharmonic Hall, and St. David's Hall, Cardiff. His engagements have taken him all over the UK and throughout Europe, and to Japan, South Korea, Malaysia and Thailand. He has also been broadcast on BBC Radio 3, ITV and BBC television. The 30-year-old pianist is a founding member of the Werther Ensemble, brought together at the inaugural Whittington International Chamber Music Festival 2013. Future projects for this ensemble include recitals throughout the UK and a complete cycle of the chamber music of Brahms.
Together with pianist Hiroaki Takenouchi, Simon is also part of the Parnassius Piano Duo, which has a particular interest in championing lesser-known English works, particularly those of Parry and Sterndale Bennett.
He is currently head of piano of the Ingenium Music Academy (Winchester), a member of the faculty at Harrow School in the UK, and has given masterclasses around the world, most recently in Malaysia and in Thailand.
Tickets cost 250 and 500 baht from Robinson Piano Showroom at Siam Discovery (02-658-1080/1).
