A concert featuring the trio Harmen Fraanje Avalonia and Vietnamese artists will be held at the Youth Theater in Hanoi and Ho Chi Minh City Conservatory of Music on November 20 and 22.
The show is expected to bring an evening of “authentic sound and a unique character; a humorous, generous world where an outpouring of improvisational brilliance is guided by a fearsomely dedicated technique.
Harmen Fraanje is one of the most prominent jazz pianists of the Netherlands. Fraanje’s music has many layers. He is able to surprise with a true musical kaleidoscope of jazz, world and classical music
Fraanje’s most recent project is cooperation with bassist Clemens van der Feen and drummer Flin van Hemmen to establish the trio Harmen Fraanje Avalonia. They released the album Avalonia last year. The internationally acclaimed website AllAboutJazz selected a performance by this trio as one of the best concerts of 2010.
