HCM CITY (VNS) — Trio A Due from Germany will kick off its first tour in HCM City with a free concert at the city's Conservatory of Music tomorrow.
Founded in 1993, the duo consists of Dr Almut Seebeck as soprano and Felicitas Weyer as mezzo-soprano and pianist. The two met at Wurzburg University while Seebeck studied medicine and voice, and Weyer studied piano and lied (song) accompaniment.
Seebeck, moderator of the duo, says they actually play the role of three people (two voices and one pianist) on stage.
The duo will perform 15 songs composed by Purcell, Handel, Schumann, Dvorak and Lehar, and there will be a collection of songs with melodies from old Italian arias, romantic lied (German romantic songs), gypsy songs, Celtic traditionals, Yiddish songs and jazz songs.
The free concert will begin at 8pm at 112 Nguyen Du Street in District 1. Their next concert will be at the Erato School of Music and Performing Arts in District 7 next Friday. They will also host a workshop on music therapy at the school on Sunday. — VNS
