Goethe-Institut Hanoi

Benefit Concert for

Cuc Cu – Quartet

From the press release:

Only founded early 2007 in Hanoi, this strictly amateur quartet has already performed at various occasions in the city as well as in Tam Dao National Park. This concert is however the first time the quartet has decided to play in a more formal setting.

The members all firmly believe that playing chamber music together is an excellent form of cross cultural communication, entertainment and relaxation. The objective of this concert is to create a clear incentive for intense study and practice as well as sharing with friends, colleagues and music lovers the beauty of some string quartet pieces out of the enormous collection composed in the past 400 years.

After the concert the members of the quartet do invite you for an informal drink in the garden to meet friends, colleagues and music lovers. Maybe more ensembles can be born as a result of this premiere.

Donations collected at the concert will be transferred to the AGENT ORANGE RELIEF FUND, Vietnam.
