VNSO’s Hanoi concerts in July

The Vietnam National Symphony Orchestra will present concerts featuring popular musical works to Hanoians in July.

A concert with the partipation of pianist Celimene Daudet and conductor Tran Vuong Thach will take place at Hanoi Opera House on July 3-4.

Meanwhile Beethoven’s works will be performed at Hanoi's French Cultural Centre L'Espace on July 6-7.

The concert will start with introduction & Rondo Capriccioso, Op. 28 by French composer Camille Saint-Saens, and end withSymphony No. 4 in B flat major, Op. 60, by Ludwig van Beethoven.

Beethoven is considered as a pioneer of Romanism. With his sonatas for violin, composed between 1797 and 1812, he was following his role model Mozart, who recognized the violin as an equal partner for the piano for the first time. Furthermore, Beethoven’s sonata are known for their unconventional modulations and rhythms, which first shocked the audience, but after a while it was seen as the own course of the great classic artist.
