The event, which is under the baton of conductor Tran Nhat Minh, aims to present an overview of Russian music over more than 150 years to music lovers.

The concert will begin with “Overture” from the opera “Tsar’s Bride” by composer Nikolai Rimsky-Korsakov (1844 -1908). This is his 10th of 15 works written about the first Russian tsar.

The audience will have the opportunity to enjoy “snow storm”, a famous music illustration by composer Georgy Sviridov (1915-1998). The lyrics were used as the introduction for a television news broadcast and were widely loved.

“Festive Overture” by Shostakovich, which was written on the occasion of the October Revolution in 1917, will also be performed at the show.

Soprano Pham Khanh Ngoc of HBSO, who won a second prize at the SLO-ASEAN Vocal Competition 2016 held in Singapore, will take the stage.
