Venue: Halle, Goethe-Institut Hanoi, 56-60 Nguyen Thai Hoc str, Ba Dinh dist
The Goethe-Institut Hanoi is delighted to present “Night Rain” – a concert of the Hanoi New Music Ensemble.
1. Vu Nhat Tan and Pham Truong Son: Electronic & Violin
2. Nguyen Thien Dao: “Khói Trương Chi” for Đàn Bầu
3. Vu Nhat Tan: “Mưa” for String Quartet
4. Arnold Schoenberg: “Transfigured Night” (Vietnamese Premiere)
“Night Rain” comes to Hà Nội, the next program of the Hà Nội New Music Ensemble!
Schoenberg‘s ”Transfigured Night” receives its Vietnamese premiere, a big step forward for my hardworking friends. I’m happy Ngo Tra My will perform a work written for her by Nguyễn Thiên Đạo, the Xenakis of Asia.
Technology guru Vũ Nhật Tân will have two works on the program. The Vietnamese understand family better than anything – I’ve tagged our friends in Schoenberg‘s family, so from Los Angeles to Vienna to Hà Nội to Venice best wishes all around!
