HÀ NỘI — A free online concert entitled SiaM Vol. 8: Il Barroco will be organised by the music project ‘Schubert in a Mug’ at 8pm on June 14.
SiaM Vol. 8 aims to bring viewers back to the root of Baroque music in Italy during the early 17th century, thus the name for Vol. 8 is “il Barroco” or Italian Baroque.
The concert will include different compositional styles for various instrumental combinations by notable Italian Baroque composers such as Domenico Scarlatti, Antonio Vivaldi, Domenico Gabrielli and Giuseppe Tartini. The programme also includes the famous keyboard concerto in F major by J S Bach which captures the Italian spirit.
Artists set to perform include guest artist Nguyễn Duy Long (bassoon), Hsin-Chiao Liao (piano), Phan Đỗ Phúc (cello), Patcharaphan Khumprakob (viola), and Hoàng Hồ Thu (piano).
In the current situation where Việt Nam is trying its best to fight off the COVID-19 pandemic, Schubert in a Mug is hosting the concert online to spread hope and positivity.
The Schubert in a Mug team will use this opportunity to call for support toward the campaign ‘Be Strong Vietnam’ run by the Sống Foundation, which will accept any financial support until 12pm, June 21.
The money raised will be used to provide emergency support of medical tools and equipment to medical centres which are facing tremendous stress and difficulties due to the pandemic. VNS
