Notes from the 12th Thailand International Composition Festival

Written by Alexander Timofeev.

Between July 16 – 24, 2016, Thailand’s Mahidol University and the Thailand Philharmonic Orchestra hosted one of the most important events for composers from all around the world - the 12th Thailand International Composition Festival. It featured the participation of distinguished faculty composers - John Corigliano, Aaron Jay Kernis and Mark Adamo. I received the invitation to attend the festival because of my composition 'Phoenix' for Clarinet and Piano – it was selected as the finalist of the festival's competition. 'Phoenix' was premiered by the musicians of Circulo Trio at one of the concerts during the festival week.
