Wolfgang Amadeus Mozart, Joaquin Turina and Johannes Brahms.

Notos Quartett comprises violinist Sindri Lederer, pianist Antonia Koster, violist Liisa Randalu and cellist Florian Streich.

The quartet will perform for two nights at the Ha Noi Opera House next week, May 9 and 10 starting at 8pm.

The concert was organised by the Goethe-Institut Ha Noi and the EU-Delegation, to celebrate Europe Days in Viet Nam.

In the first half of the programme, audiences will enjoy Mozart's G-moll KV 478 and Turina's A-Moll Op 67 for piano, violin, viola and cello.

The second half of the concert will continue with G-Moll Op 25 by Brahms.

Founded in 2007, the Notos ensemble have earned recognition on the international stage and won over audiences at festivals all over Europe. They received the Parkhouse Award in London and first prize at the Charles-Hennen-Concours in the Netherlands, both in 2011.

The Notos musicians studied in different cities - Berlin, Frankfurt, Aachen and London - which has an enriching effect on their music.

By conveying their own fascination with music to their listeners, the members of Notos Quartett make their concerts especially enjoyable musical experiences.

Free tickets for the ensemble concerts are available starting today at the Goethe-Institut Ha Noi, at 56-58 Nguyen Thai Hoc Street. Telephone: 37342251/52/53 (ext 9). – VNS
