Krue Euah Suntornsanan, the founder of the Suntaraporn Orchestra, was one of the major musical composers of the Ratanakosin Period.

He was the first Thai musical artist to be honoured by the United Nations Educationan, Scientic and Cultural Organization (UNESCO) as an important person of the world in 2010, the year which concides with the centenary of his birth.
The songs written by Khrue Eauh Suntornsanan are considered to be literary and musical masterpieces, which harmoniously blen Thai classical music with Western Music. His songs are thus uniuqe and have been taken to be the prototype of Western-style Thai music today.
