2015年11月にはロイヤルバンコク交響楽団に客演し好評を博した。2017年4月、再び同交響楽団に招かれ客演指揮。5月5日付のバンコクポストにおいてJames Keller氏執筆の批評が次のように掲載された。 “Massaging the tempo--- At the Royal Bangkok Symphony Orchestra’s sold-out Classical Concert No.2 last Friday, at the Small Hall of the Thailand Cultural Centre, already well-established local musician Apichai Leamthong enhanced his reputation with a commendable performance of this masterpiece, producing both a musically convincing and technically competent rendition. He played the usual revised version by Tchaikovsky’s original dedicatee Wilhelm Fitzenhagen, with a well-balanced RBSO accompanying very sensitively under the direction of jovial Japanese conductor Hide Shindori. The inner parts of this score in particular require a neatness of articulation and transparency of texture so as not to cover up the solo line, so that pianos are often better read as pianissimos, for example. This was achieved, as was a sense of ongoing momentum and connection between the theme and the seven distinct variations, which otherwise might be in danger of presenting themselves as separate, isolated units, rather than functioning as linked sections of the larger, unified whole.
It is primarily the conductor’s role to effect this cohesion successfully by steering skilfully through the successive phrase structures with well-judged tempo relationships, as the mood of one variation or atmospheric passage transitions smoothly to the next contrasting one. Shindori achieved this admirably, although the overall tempo of the performance was a little slower than many audiences may be accustomed to -- Leamthong made sure to give himself ample time to negotiate the numerous hurdles that Tchaikovsky-Fitzenhagen present with ease and confidence.
Shindori had opened the concert with a tastefully etched reading of Sir Edward Elgar’s beloved salon piece Salut D’Amour as arranged for strings, woodwind and French horns. Composed in the very same year as the Andante cantabile, which was to follow in the programme, it is not entirely dissimilar music, also indulging unabashedly in heart-on-sleeve emotional outpourings of vibrato-laden bel canto style. In this work, however, it is the first violin section which holds the tune, for the most part, with its numerous tutti portamentos and rich-toned G-string playing here given careful, loving attention and treatment by the RBSO ranks.
Following the intermission was a quite breathtaking performance of Beethoven’s Symphony No.7, immediately reminding anyone who had seen Shindori on his last visit of his energised, exuberant stage persona. Beethoven’s very opening metronome marking of crotchet-equalling 69 beats per minute is designed to build up an irresistible tension before the sublime release of that famous dotted motor-rhythm which dominates the Vivace.
More than one other eminent composer noticed that wild dancing might well be imagined when listening to the outer movements, and in this respect the orchestra and conductor were certainly a happy match for each other. The audience was clearly overjoyed by the experience, Shindori having truly won them over once again -- as indeed he had also done with the RBSO itself.”
