with his famous musical interpretations, interviewed by an eminent personality,
Mrs. KENDERGI in 1958 with the radio of UNESCO in Paris;
Accompanied by his two internationally-acclaimed students:
FANG - Young virtuoso of the pipa and guzheng, traditional Chinese
- Prize winner of Monocorde of the Academy of the Nam Vietnamese soldier.
Nothing more attractive than this marvellous meeting great Master and his fabulous disciples of traditional Vietnamese music. You would feel captivated by the richness and grace of the traditional musical instruments, sometime gently harmonious, sometimes highly contrasts, and often richly coloured like a painting. The solid and rich sound of the moon-shaped lute will dialogue eloquently with the Monocorde, as well as the 16-stringed Zither that possesses a crystal and cherishing sound like that of a brook. Professor Tran, soloist with the 16-stringed Vietnamese Zither and the two-stringed fiddle, and the talented Duke Thanh, soloist in Monocorde, will share the drums and the moon-shaped lute, performing the ceremonial music of Court (music reserved to the king). The young virtuoso Liu Fang will impress you with her Pipa (Chinese four-stringed lute) and Zheng (21-stringed zither) in the classical music of China. In particular in a beautiful trio of stars, with the 16-stringed zither she newly learned from Prof. Tran, Liu Fang will joint with professor Tran and Duc Thanh in a brilliant improvisation of the traditional music of the South Vietnamese styles, offering further surprises to discover...
In here is a discovery of Eastern tradition where the Master is regarded as spirituel father - which makes in this concert, a concert of heart, a rare meeting not to be missed.
