Conductor returns for concert
HA NOI — Conductor Le Phi Phi has returned from Serbia and will perform at Ha Noi Opera House tonight.
Phi, who was born in Ha Noi, will lead the Viet Nam National Symphony Orchestra to play Russian pieces in the Night with Rachmaninov.
The Night with Rachmaninov will be the first performance of the Viet Nam Symphony Orchestra and Georgian-French guest pianist Guigla Katsarava.
Katsarava comes from the great tradition of Russian piano-players, but has a unique musical personality of his own. The legendary Lazar Berman described his interpretations as being "always impregnated with a true comprehension of style".
He has performed recitals, chamber music and with orchestras in many countries. The Ha Noi performance will be his first in Viet Nam.
The concert will feature two pieces, including Piano Concerto No 2 and Rachmaninoff's popular Symphonic Dances.
The concerts will begin at 8pm tonight and tomorrow. — VNS
