From Goethe Institut:

Goethe-Institut Hanoi and DomDom, the hub for experimental music & art, jointly present the concert “Endless Thread”.

The Hanoi New Music Ensemble (HNME) was founded in 2015 by the initiative of the composer Vu Nhat Tan, violinist Pham Truong Son and American conductor Jeff von der Schmidt. The new group is eager to bring Vietnamese and international contemporary music to a broad Vietnamese public. HNME is currently supported by DomDom, which is the hub for experimental music & art in Hanoi.

“Endless Thread” is a chamber concert with songs by contemporary composers of Vietnam and the world through the ages: from the quartet “Central Highlands” (“Tay Nguyen”) by Do Nhuan – a composer belonging to the first generation of Vietnamese contemporary classical music – through “Rain” (Mua) of Vu Nhat Tan and “Journey Number Three” by Tran Kim Ngoc to “Discovery” – a composition by the promising young composer Nguyen Minh Nhat.

Three contemporary works of influential European composers are interspersed: “Syrinx” by the French Impressionist Claude Debussy and the “Quartet for clarinet, violin, cello and piano” by German composer of Modernism Paul Hindemith. The concert furthermore contains “The Sick Moon” (“Der Kranke Mond”) – a duet piece for flute and soprano written by Pierrot Lunaire and premiered in Berlin in 1912. It is representative of the free atonality of the composer Arnold Schönberg, who is regarded as the father of contemporary classical music.
