HÀ NỘI — A classical concert with violinist Stephane Trần Ngọc and pianist Trần Thái Linh will be held at French Cultural Centre (L’Espace) tonight.
The musicians will play four pieces by French composers Claude Debussy; Maurice Ravel; Cesar Franck and Camille Saint-Saens.
"This year is the 100th anniversary of Debussy ’s death and it felt vital to play one of his wonderful works with his violin sonata, which he wrote just a year before his death," said violinist Trần Ngọc.
"We like to assimilate Franck as a French composer although he was actually Belgian. His sonata for violin and piano is one of the most famous sonatas and rightly deserved."
Violinist Trần Ngọc has performed in more than 30 countries as soloist with some of Europe’s finest orchestras including the Radio - France Philharmonic, the Monte - Carlo Philharmonic and Japanese Shinsei Symphony Orchestra. He won Grand Prix and Special Audience Prize at the Long-Thibaud 1990 International Competition.—VNS
