German famous artists to perform in Hanoi

Two guest artists from Germany, Schumann and Alpers, will perform classical works with the Vietnam National Academy of Music's Youth Orchestra on July 1. 

The concert will feature overture Coriolan and concerto for piano and orchestra No 5 by Beethoven and Belgian-French Cesar Franck's Symphony in D minor with pianist Hinrich Alpers and conductor Christina Schumann.

At the age of 27, Schumann is considered one of Germany 's most talented musical virtuosos. Debuting in March this year with the Bavarian State Opera, he has already led the Bavarian Radio Symphony Orchestra and the Philharmonia Orchestra London.

In Vietnam , he will appear for the second time as a guest conductor with the Youth Orchestra.

Alpers won the first prize at the famous International Telekom Beethoven Competition last year.

He will play works by Schumann, Chopin and Beethoven as part of a solo performance at the concert.

The Youth Orchestra, which consists of 70 young lecturers and exceptional students from the Academy, has worked under the direction of such internationally renowned conductors as Claire Levacher ( France ), Peter Gulke and Christian Schumann (Germany) and Nguyen Thieu Hoa.

Free tickets are available at Hanoi's Goethe Institute 56-58 Nguyen Thai Hoc street.
