The Vietnam National Symphony Orchestra (VNSO ) will perform a “Mozart&Beethoven” concert at l’Espace, the French cultural centre in Ha Noi, on Wednesday and Thursday.
At the concert, the VNSO will play two special classical pieces which are rarely performed in Viet Nam: Mozart’s Clarinet Concerto in A Major, K. 622 and Beethoven’s Symphony No.1 in D Major Op.21.The Clarinet Concerto is believed to be one of the final works by Mozart, who died less than two months after it premiered.
Notable for its intricate interplay between the soloist and the orchestra, the concerto is purely instrumental and the 200-seat auditorium at L’Espace fits perfectly for that purpose.
The concert will feature Conductor Dong Quang Vinh and young clarinet player Tran Khanh Quang.
Born in 1984, Vinh first studied the flute at the Viet Nam National Academy of Music. In 2004, he was trained as a classical music conductor at the Shanghai Conservatory of Music. After his graduation in 2010, Vinh received a full scholarship from the Chinese government to pursue a masters’ course as an orchestra conductor. During his stay in China, he conducted several prestigious orchestras playing classical and traditional music in Beijing.
The concert, which is expected to entertain lovers of classical music, will begin at 8pm at the cultural centre located at 24 Trang Tien Street. — VNS
