Two leading Australian performers will impress Hanoi audiences at a free concert at Radio the Voice of Vietnam Theatre on February 28.
The concert, titled “Brothers in Concert: Sounds of Colours”, will be jointly organised by the Australian Embassy in Hanoi and Radio the Voice of Vietnam, according to a press release from the Australian Embassy.
It will feature performances by guitarist Leonard Grigoryan and Joseph Tawadros who specialises in the oud, a kind of lute, as well as other well-known Vietnamese artists.
The Grigoryan and Tawadros family names are synonymous with modern Australian classical music. Regarded as one of Australia ’s finest classical guitarists, Grigoryan is also well-known for playing different kinds of music such as latin, jazz, folk and contemporary music.
Tawadros is recognised as one of the world’s leading performers and composers for the oud (an eleven stringed lute of Middle-Eastern origin). With his brilliant technique and lively performing style, he has appeared in many concert halls worldwide and has dazzled audience with his passionate music.
The Australian Ambassador to Vietnam , Allaster Cox, said that the concert will help to bring Australian and Vietnamese closer together by this collaboration of artists from both countries.
Grigoryan and Tawadros will also share their experiences with students at the Vietnam National Academy of Music and the Ho Chi Minh City Conservatory of Music./.
