Up and coming young Thai pianist to perform in Chiang Mai

The next recital organized by the Friends of Music Making in Chiang Mai will take place in the music salon of Anne and Kazuyoshi Murase in Hang Dong on June 10th. The previous recital in May was a stunning success and brought wonderful dynamic musicianship to Chiang Mai – the Friends aim to continue in this manner with a recital by the very talented and already ‘being-talked-about’ nineteen year old Thai pianist San Jittakarn. He is currently studying music on a full scholarship at West Virginia University Faculty of Music, USA, under Dr Peter Amstutz.

19 year old pianist San Jittakarn to perform in Chiang Mai

San is no stranger to Chiang Mai having attended a Festival some five years ago, taking a master class with one of the Festival directors. San began studying piano when he was 8 years old at the Nat Music School with Charun Poomiwadorn and Nat Yontararak. In 2006 he was the first prize winner at that school in their piano competition. A year later in 2007, San was accepted into the Music School of Mahidol University on scholarship and studied there with Bakhthiyor Allaberganoff, Sebastien Koch, Ramasoon Sitayalan and Eun-Young Suh. San has also undertaken master classes with renowned international musicians such as Jerzy Sterzinski, Rolf-Dieter Arens, Wolf Harden and Tomasz Herbut. In Thailand, when at home, San is continuing his studies with renowned French concert pianist Sebastien Koch.
His program for the evening will be:
Rachmaninoff: Etude Tableau in E minor Opus 39 No 5
Chopin: Ballade No 2 Opus 36 in F major
Franz Liszt: Spanish Rhapsody, S 254
Stravinsky: Three Movements from the Ballet Petruschka

The recital will start at 7.30pm and a limited number of guest seats at 300 baht (100 baht for students) may be reserved through Khun Saeng on: [email protected] phone: 089 632 3818

This young pianist has made great strides musically during the past few years and he is now ranked highly among the better Thai pianists. We are delighted to welcome San back to Chiang Mai after his first full year in the USA and assure him of a warm reception!
