Hanoi New Music Ensemble to play free concert at Goethe-Institut

The Hanoi New Music Ensemble (HNME) was formed in 2015 by composer and electronic musician Vu Nhat Tan, violinist Pham Truong Son, and composer Tran Kim Ngoc. American conductor Jeff von der Schmidt is the leader of the ensemble and works as a lecturer at the Vietnam National Academy of Music.

The group’s aim is to bring contemporary Vietnamese and international music to the public at home and abroad.

The program includes compositions such as ‘Khoi Truong Chi’ for Dan Bau (gourd lute) by Nguyen Thien Dao, pieces for electronic instruments and violin by Vu Nhat Tan and Pham Truong Son, Vu Nhat Tan’s work ‘Rain’ for String Quartet, and the Vietnamese premiere of ‘Transfigured Night’ bythe famous Austrian composer, Arnold Schoenberg.
