World-renowned German baritone Benjamin Appl and Vietnamese female pianist Bich Tra will perform at the “From Europe with love” concert in HCMC this weekend.

This is the very first project of the Soul Live Project Series - Classical Music initiated by Amberstone Media, marking the first step of a long journey to shorten the distance between the audience and the arts.

The concert will take place at the Soul Live Project Complex, 216 Pasteur, District 3 from 7 p.m. on April 21, 2018. It will feature some of the greatest works by Robert Schumann, Franz Schubert, Johannes Brahms, Felix Mendelssohn, Benjamin Britten, and Francis Poulenc, and also some lesser known gems, even to Europeans, will be introduced in Vietnam for the first time. With the “poetry in songs from the cities of romance,” Benjamin will tell the audience a love story which he believes, any generation can relate to.

Prior to the concert, Benjamin will be a guest of the “In Your Suitcase” talk show on April 20. The suitcase that Benjamin brings with him to share with the Vietnamese audience includes experiences with the arts and the feelings of an emotional soul that fell in love with the beauty of classical music. It contains stories of an artist wandering all paths of the arts to see, experience and leave a mark on his career.

Benjamin Appl won the Gramophone Classical Music Award in 2016 for Young Artist of the Year and was described as “the current front-runner in the new generation of Lieder singers” by Gramophone magazine.

In 2018, Benjamin received the Orphée d’Or Dietrich Fischer-Dieskau Award for Best Lieder Interpretations by the Académie du Disque Lyrique in France. He has appeared at major European venues, including the Barbican Centre London, Concertgebouw Amsterdam, Wiener Konzerthaus and Philharmonie Paris.
