Athita Kuankachorn, Master Cello Recital

master uitvoerende muziek - klassieke muziek

My recital consists of four works that are different in style. The first, Ludwig Van Beethoven’s Sonata for piano and cello Op.5 No.2 in g minor, was written in 1796 and demonstrates the classical style. The second work, Dimitry Kabalevsky’s Cello Concerto No.1 Op.49 in g minor, was written in 1948-49 for a young generation of Russian musicians. This piece is full of strong Russian flavour. The third piece is Variations on a Theme of Rossini, written in America in 1942 by Czech composer Bohuslav Martinů. To conclude, there is Lao Kham Hom, a traditional Thai song arranged for cello solo, which blends it with Western harmony but is still representative of the sound of traditional Thai tunes.

(Performed with Tae Yoshioka on the piano.)
