HÀ NỘI — The Baltic Neopolis Virtuosi project from Poland will present a contemporary classical music show in Việt Nam next week to celebrate the hundredth anniversary of diplomatic relations.
With the goal of increasing interest in Polish culture, the concert will take place at the Việt Nam Academy of Music in Hà Nội on October 14.
The concert is being sponsored by the Adam Mickiewicz Institute and the Polish Embassy in Hà Nội.
Creating a positive image of Poland outside the country was part of the mission to build the image of a modern state, open to intercultural dialogue, according to Nguyễn Mai Quyên from the embassy.
The Baltic Neopolis Virtuosi project presents the latest trends in Polish music through concerts by an ensemble comprising of outstanding musicians such as violinist Emmanuel Salvador, pianist Michael Francuz, cellist Robert Dacko and violinist Slawonmira Wilga.
Its members are all internationally recognised musicians who share a passion for chamber music and enjoy sharing it.
The repertoire includes Piano concerto E-minor op. 11 by F Chopin, Overture for string quartet by M Gorecki, and String quartet D-minor by S. Moniuszko.
They will also perform Sunrise in Asia by Nguyễn Phúc Linh.
The orchestra is widely recognised in Europe and Asia. — VNS
