A Thai window to Switzerland

Reading time: 1 min. Frank Martin

In mid-2008, Maria Martin found a previously unnoticed handwritten manuscript by Frank Martin, titled Deuxième Ballade for flute and piano or flute, string orchestra, piano and percussion. This was the composer’s own arrangement of the Ballade for saxophone and string orchestra, piano and percussion, which he had composed for Sigurd Rascher in 1938.

On 12 and 13 May the work will be performed for the very first time in Thailand – by flutist Sebastian Jacot and the Thailand Philharmonic Orchestra (cond. Claude Villaret).
