Following the hugely successful concerts by the London Symphony Orchestra in June, the College of Music, Mahidol University continues to bring world-class musical talent to the Kingdom of Thailand with a one time performance by the Berlin Philharmonic and the charismatic young conductor Gustavo Dudamel.
The Berlin Philharmonic is one of the world’s most elite ensembles. Known for its beautiful tone, creative colors, and commitment to high standard of artistry, the Berlin Philharmonic will perform one of the world’s most beloved symphonic works: Mahler’s Symphony no. 5. The long-time conductor of the Berlin Philharmonic, Herbert von Karajan said about this piece: “you forget that time has passed. A great performance of the Fifth is a transforming experience. The fantastic finale almost forces you to hold your breath.”
At the young age of only 37 Gustavo Dudamel is one of the world’s most recognizable conductors. Born in Venezuela, he is the artistic director of the LA Philharmonic and a frequent guest conductor on the international stage. Dudamel is motivated by a profound belief in music’s power to unite and inspire. As a companion piece to the Mahler symphony, Dudamel has chosen to program Leonard Bernstein’s Divertimento.
The College of Music, Mahidol University is proud to host a once in a lifetime opportunity to experience the best of the best in classical music on November 9 at 7.30 PM.
