AsemconnectVietnam - Residents in the central city of Da Nang are being treated to a series of concerts by a quartet from the Japan Philharmonic Orchestra.
The concerts are organised to celebrate the 45th anniversary of the establishment of diplomatic relations between Vietnam and Japan.
The quartet includes violinists Masakazu Saito, Shunichiro Saito, and Kumiko Nakagawa, and cellist Tetsuya Osawa.
The first concert held on June 26 night featured well-known symphonies such as Canon (Johann Pachelbel), Divertimento (Mozart), Four Seasons: Spring (Vivaldi), and Diem Xua (Old Flame) by the renowned Vietnamese composer Trinh Cong Son.
The artists delighted the children with their orchestra performance in the city library. The quartet also performed for patients and doctors at the Da Nang Tumour Hospital on June 27.
The concluding concert will be held at the U Cafe in the ancient town of Hoi An. A street music show will also be performed for locals at Chua Cau, Hội An.
All concerts are open to the public.
The Tokyo-based Japan Philharmonic Orchestra was founded in 1956. It is well-known not only for its exquisite performances but also for its contribution in pushing for cultural development through arts education.
Before their first performance in Vietnam in June, JPO performed with renowned Vietnamese pianist Dang Thai Son in a concert held April 18 in Japan.
The non-profit concert has been endorsed by the Japanese Embassy, the Da Nang Union of Friendship Organisations, and the Japan Business Association in Da Nang.
