A concert featuring Vietnamese music with Grammy award-winning conductor Jeff Von Der Schmidt will take place at the small Concert Hall of the Viet Nam National Academy of Music tomorrow night.


Entitled Suy Tu Trang Dong (Thoughts of the Winter Moon), the night will present works by Nguyen Thien Dao, Vu Nhat Tan, Nguyen Minh Nhat, and the group Dong Kinh Co Nhac (The Ancient Music Group of Tonkin)

The night will open with a performance by The Ancient Music Group of Tonkin, featuring artists on dan day (plucked lute), dan nhi (bowed two-string instrument), and dan tranh (16-string zither).

This will be followed by a string orchestra presenting Tuyen Lua (Streak of Fire) by Nguyen Thien Dao. In 1969, with his performance of this movement at the Royan Festival in France, Dao became a phenomenon on the international music scene. The piece is an epic about the fierce struggle of Vietnamese people against their enemies.

The repertoire will also include Cham for String Quartet by Vu Nhat Tan, which is a mixture of electronic music and Vietnamese traditional music, and Rise and Fall for Flute, Clarinet, Percussion, Piano & String Quartet by Nguyen Minh Nhat.

Tickets are free of charge and can be reserved. Contact: 01249125212/ 0903230685. Email: vunhattan@gmail.com  Web: hanoinewmusicensemble.org. The concert will start at 8pm.
