HANOI — On December 11, Heritage Space will host a special musical night entitled Poems by Zither.
The concert will feature the đàn tranh (zither) performer Nguyễn Thanh Thủy, who will team up with Đoàn Thanh Bình, a chèo (traditional opera) and ca trù (ceremonial singing) singer. The performance aims to show poetry in music and the encounter between traditional and contemporary music.
The night will also introduce three new works composed by Thủy, American composer Bill Brooks, and Swedish Henrik Frisk. The three new compositions feature recitation and đàn tranh accompaniment reminiscent of the chanting style developed by Irish poet William Butler Yeats.
A lecturer at the Việt Nam National Academy of Music, since 2012 Thủy has carried out an artistic doctorate decree at the Malmö Academy of Music in Sweden.
Poems by Zither will take place from 8pm to 10pm.
Heritage Space is located on the first floor, Dolphin Plaza Building, 28 Trần Bình Street, Mỹ Đình 2, Tel: (04) 62543319. Entry is VNĐ150,000. — VNS
