The concert is jointly held by the Ho Chi Minh City Ballet Symphony Orchestra and Opera (HBSO), Poland’s Mickiewicz Institute and the Warsaw Music Foundation, marking the National Independence Day of Poland.
The concert will begin with Symphony No.1 in C Major, op. 21, by German composer Ludwig van Beethoven (1770-1827).
Composed and premiered in 1880, this piece marks his early foray into symphonic composition. Often referred to as “Beethoven’s First Symphony,” it showcases his ability to innovate classical forms, which he would spend the rest of his career perfecting.
The second piece of the concert will be Polish Fantasy for piano and orchestra by Polish virtuoso pianist and composer Frédéric Chopin (1810-1849).
The event will be held in cooperation with the Mickiewicz Institute and the Warsaw Music Foundation - Poland.
Poland's leading pianist Joanna Marcinkowska will perform with the Vietnamese orchestra under the baton of conductor Wojciech Czepiel./.
