Ensemble “PHAO HOA”

Avant-garde Percussion concert

From the press release:

The Phao Hoa Ensemble was established in 2002 by Professor Emeritus and artist Nguyen Chi Vu. An avant-garde percussion group, Phao Hoa owes its uniqueness to its members, the best percussionists from the Hanoi National Conservatory, as well as their desire to be the ambassadors of symphonic music in contemporary Vietnam.

Phao Hoa produces new sounds enabling it to discover unknown musical fields. During this evening devoted to contemporary rhythms and variations, Phao Hoa will present to Hanoi audiences for the first time Gabriel Pierre Berlios’ timpani concerto, and the concerto for percussion by Gilles Balissat.
