The information was released at the press briefing in Hanoi on November 15.

The VNSO will be joined by Rainer Honeck, the concertmaster of the Vienna Philharmonic Orchestra, as well as singers Marta Poliszot (Soprano) and Adrian Eröd (Baritone; from the Vienna State Opera).

They will perform numerous compositions by Wolfgang A. Mozart, Johann Strauss's son Josef Strauss, as well as Emmerich Kálmán.

As leader of the Wiener Virtuosen, the Wiener Streichersolisten, the Ensemble Wien and the Vienna-Berlin Chamber Orchestra, Honeck is also a prolific chamber musician, appearing on numerous studio and broadcast radio recordings, reported VNA.

He has performed as a conductor in recent years, with the Malmo Symphony Orchestra in Sweden, the Yomiuri Symphony Orchestra and Kioi Sinfonietta in Tokyo, among others.

Eröd is a great favourite of public and press at his base, the Vienna State Opera, with his tremendous diversity, whether as Figaro in Rossini’s Barber of Seville, as Valentin in Gounod’s Faust, as Britten’s Billy Budd, or as Lescaut in Massenet’s Manon.

Poliszot has a beautiful, sonorous lyrical coloratura soprano voice and wonderful physical abilities.

Jowita Dziedzic, theatre critic for Gazeta Wyborcza, wrote: “On the state she is like a fish in water; her movements are full of grace, and her voice flawless.”/.
