Accordingly, four concerts will be held during the event. The opening concert “Carnaval de Guitare” on November 1 is set to feature special performances from the Festival Guitar Ensemble and the Saigon Guitar Quartet, as well as the Japanese couple of guitarist Toru Kobayashi and mandolinist Mai Hayashi.
The second concert named “East meets West” will enchant audiences with rustic classical guitar melodies.
During the concert, four talented Japanese guitarists Watanabe Mihoko, Kazuo Nishimoto, Etsuko Nishimoto, and Gen Matsuda, will perform classical guitar songs by notable composers around the world.
The third concert Timeless Melodies will then feature outstanding performances by two master guitarists. Paulo Inda embodies the dynamism and enthusiasm of Brazil, while Gérard Abiton's sophisticated and talented guitar-playing style symbolises the charm of France.
