Welcome to the Ancient and New Music of Việt Nam!

On Friday November 4 at 8 PM in the Grand Hall of Vietnam National Academy of Music, the Hanoi New Music Ensemble will be joined by the Ancient Music Emsemble of Tonkin, in their not to be missed first collaboration. Together the two groups give voice to the true classical music of Việt Nam, connecting centuries of musical generations from the past to the present. The concert opens with The “Communal House Door Song”, a perfect ancient introduction for the new music The Autumn Wind by Ton That Tiet and Fire Line by Nguyen Thien Đao, the grandfathers of Vietnamese new music. We turn to a brand new string quartet by Nguyen Minh Nhat, who proudly studies at the Manhattan School of Music in New York City. Then the music turns to two giants of the 20th century, the Pastorale of Igor Stravinsky and Dérive 1 by Pierre Boulez, followed by two masterpieces by the current leaders of Hanoi New Music Ensemble, The Memory by Vũ Nhật Tân and Resurrection of the Soul by Trần Kim Ngọc.
