Belgium conductor Daniel Gazon will join artists of the HCMC Ballet Symphony Orchestra and Opera (HBSO) at the premiere of Austrian composer Anton Bruckner’s requiem at the HCMC Opera House on Thursday.
The requiem by Anton Bruckner is one of the most popular pieces of this kind of music. Conductor Daniel Gazon is a prestigious name who has appeared at many concerts in Europe and around the world. Requiem is a musical composition for the repose of the dead based on the Latin language. Its meaningful content has been developed into an art form with high values. Great late composer Mozart is the first one who had created a large-scale requiem with the participation of a symphony orchestra and a choir and solo vocalists.
Anton Bruckner has been honored as one of the most outstanding composers in the 19th century for his classical pieces and religion music compositions. The Requiem in D minor by Anton Bruckner was premiered in September 15, 1849 for a setting of a mixed choir, vocal soloists, three trombones, one horn, strings and organs.
The concert in Vietnam will feature Korean soprano Cho Hae Ryong, mezzano-soprano Nguyen Vu Uyen Di, tenor Pham Trang and baritone Dao Mac and conductor Tran Nhat Minh as a choir master. Apart from the renowned requiem, viewers are promised a performance of Symphony No. 36 by Mozart. This is a unique piece as the composer finished it in four days during his travel with his wife.
