Three talented pianists will take to the stage in the impressive 600-seat auditorium at Kantha Bopha Siem Reap (Jayavarman VII Hospital).
The event’s main sponsor, Kang Meng Huy Foundation, proudly presents Metta Legita from Indonesia, Philippe Javelle from France and Gabriele Faja from Italy. Each of the performers, all award winning pianists, will mesmerise the audience with a written or improvised 20 minute set, highlighting the rich tones of the venue’s Steinway & Sons grand piano.
The one-night-only event, with additional sponsorship by Hops Brewery, IPS Real Estate, Bloo Teamwork, Paris Bakery and Il Forno restaurant, follows a format favoured by pianists with a Jazz or improvisation background. The grand piano, still a relatively rare sight in Cambodia, provides an exciting addition to the evening’s repertoire. Its distinctive sound has been a pivotal part of The Piano Trilogy’s success, having performed regularly since 2015.
All ticket proceeds will support the Kantha Bopha Foundation, founded by the late Dr. Beat Richner.
Ticket sales will support the Kantha Bopha Foundation, founded by the late Dr. Beat Richner – a paediatrician, cellist and philanthropist. His foundation is responsible for the treatment of 85% of Cambodia’s child population since it was established in 1992. The auditorium will be filled with the sound of music for the first time since Dr Beat Richner’s cello recitals, which were a regular feature of the Siem Reap calendar, raising vital funds for the foundation.
