Phuket’s Mom Tri’s kitchen hosts Silver Oak Wine Dinner

Phuket’s Mom Tri’s kitchen hosts Silver Oak Wine DinnerLast night, 25th February 2014, Mom Tri’s Kitchen played host to a special 5 Course Wine Dinner featuring wines from the prestigious Silver Oak & Twomey Cellars, located in the Napa Valley area in California, America, one of the best wine regions in the world.

Silver Oak is single-minded in the pursuit of exceptional Cabernet Sauvignon. For 40 years, the Duncan family has produced delicious and distinctive Cabernets from their Napa Valley and Alexander Valley wineries. Each Cabernet is food-friendly, extensively aged to be drinkable upon release, and perfect for enjoying with friends or family.

The family established Twomey Cellars to pursue the discovery of varietals in California beyond Cabernet Sauvignon. They use the same philosophy that has guided Silver Oak since its founding in 1972: make exceptional, food-friendly wines that are deliciously drinkable upon release.

Phuket’s Mom Tri’s Villa Royale hold’s Classical Music Concert

Phuket’s Mom Tri’s Villa Royale hold’s Classical Music Concert Yesterday evening, Tuesday 18th February 2014, Mom Tri’s Villa Royale held a classical music concert as part of the annual Baan Kata Arts Festival, a celebration of art and cultural events.

Mom Tri Devakul had invited the Pro Music String Quartet featuring M.L.Usni Pramoj on viola, Tasana Nagavajara on violin, Siripong Tiptan on violin, and Kittikhun Sodpraser on cello and saw the quartet perform Felix Mendelsssohn’s String Quartets in E minor, Op.44, No.2 which featured Allegro assai appassionato, Scherzo, Allegro di molto, Andante and Presto agitato. The also performed M.L. Usni Pramoj’s String Quartet No.3 featuring Moderato, Allegretto, Larghetto and Allegro.

Phuket’s Mom Tri’s Villa Royale hold’s Classical Music Concert M.L.Usni Pramoj said about the choice of music “Mendelssohn’s string quartets were intended to be played by friends in his home and with the E minor quartet he certainly made them work. The opening Allegro assai involves fast moving scales and arpeggios with not much respite and must be played with passion. This is followed by even more hard labour in the Scherzo, testing each player’s bowing dexterity.  The Andante, where one would expect to be able to relax a little, has a footnote by the composer warning players not to dawdle but to keep things moving, while the Presto agitato is guaranteed to agitate any string player.  The E minor is regarded by many as Mendelsssohn’s finest string quartet.  From the players’ point of view, the toil is well worth the effort.

“I find it difficult to describe my own music because I cannot explain why anyone would want to spend long hours creating some noise.  I can only hope that listeners will not find the noise offensive. Sometimes quite pleasant?”
