Theerit Kanyarong

Last night I attended a cello recital by Theerit Kanyarong at the CRK Recital Hall, Payap University, Kaew Nawarat Campus.

Featured works were by:

Julius Klengel, Concertino No. 2 in G Major, Op. 41,

Pyotr Liyich Tchaikovsky, Andante Cantabile, from String Quartet No. 1 in G Major.

 Karl Davydov, Romance sans paroles, Op. 23.

Gabriel Faure, Pelleas et Melisande, Op. 80.

 Sergei Rachmaninoff, Vocalise, Op. 34, No. 14.

Antonin Leopold Dvorak, Humoreque, No.7 Op 10.

Theerit was born in Tak (about 200 km south of Chiang Mai) in 1991. He is now in his third year at Payap studying for cello bachelors degree. He has a pleasant modest demeanor. It was obvious that he was popular from the reaction of other students in the audience.

He was superbly accompanied by Japanese pianist,Atsuko Seta.

For Tchaikovsky’s Andante Cantabile, he was joined by the Payap String Ensemble. This is a beautiful piece of music and for me the highlight of the concert. It is said that Tchaikovsky based it on a a folk song the composer heard whistled by a house painter.

An outstanding concert by a talented cello player. It is a wonderful instrument.

 Here is an orchestral version of Andante Cantabile played by an unnamed orchestra conducted by Eugene Ormandy
