Classical music concert in Hanoi

A classical music concert featuring sweet and romantic melodies will be held at Manzi Art Space in Hanoi on August 17.

The concert will take music lovers on a musical journey from compositions of the 18th century German composer, Wolfgang Amadeus Mozart, to the Argentinean tango nuevo, revisited in a contemporary way by Astor Piazzolla in the 20th century.

Masterpieces will be performed by American pianist Anne Chamberlain, violinist Le Tuan Anh, viola player Ho Viet Khoa and cellist Nguyen Thanh Tu.

The New York Times wrote about the famous international artist, “Anne Chamberlain, a pianist with the technical tools and intellectual acuity necessary to play 20th century music well, did not let her century down in her recital at Alice Tully Hall. Early or late composers found in the artist a persuasive advocate”.

Anne Chamberlain was born in New York City, graduated from the Oberlin Conservatory of Music and studied at the Juilliard School. She has held several performances throughout the United States and Europe. She received the John Knowles Paine Award from the Portland (Maine) Concert Association for recognition of her performances of American music of the late 20th Century.

The American artist has recently performed in Hanoi and coached artists of the Vietnam National Opera & Ballet Theater since 2010.

Le Tuan Anh was born in a family with long music tradition. He was introduced to music at the age of six by his father, a professional violinist. After graduating from the Vietnam National Academy of Music, he became a member of the Vietnam National Opera and Ballet. He has performed in various chamber music ensembles including Bangkok Opera and Asian Orchestra.

Cellist Nguyen Thanh Tu studied at the Vietnam National Academy of Music and graduated in 2010. She participated in the Asian Youth Orchestra and joined tours in Japan, China and Thailand.

Ho Viet Khoa graduated with a Master degree in Violin Performance in 2005. He is a lecturer at the String Department of Vietnam National Academy of Music and a member of the Hanoi Philharmonic Orchestra and the Red River Ensemble.

The concert will also be held at the Goethe-Institute in Hanoi on August 21.
