Music nights – Summer sonatas for the violin and piano Pensant a Toi
June 10, 2022 @ 7:00 PM - June 12, 2022 @ 10:00 PM300,000VND
Summer Sonatas for the violin and piano
On 10, 11 and 12 June (8pm-10pm) FVH teams up with SiaM (Schubert in a Mug – musicians), supported by L’art pour L’art, to bring you ‘Pensant à Toi’ – a series of three concerts. Held over three consecutive evenings, we showcase six of Vietnamese composer Nguyễn Văn Quỳ’s sonatas.
SiaM, which stands for Schubert in a Mug, is a group of extremely talented young Vietnamese musicians. Their monthly performances sell out quickly. They bring the beauty of classical music to audiences in a warm and personal way combining music with conversation and discussion.

And their save the date for these concerts
Here is a lovely teaser video made by SiaM showing the musicians practicing

Unlike other FVH events and joint projects, tickets need to be purchased in advance via SiaM. They can also be bought on the night depending on availability.
Priced at 300,000 VND pp person and 250,000 VND (for students) per concert. Money goes towards venue and grand piano hire and musician fees; we hope after event expenses are deducted some money can go towards cancer patients and orphans – 2 causes that were close to Quỳ’s heart.
Ticket price includes a small exhibition and short 10 minute documentary film on Quỳ, concert (sonatas) with discussion, and soft drinks. And hopefully we can provide glasses of wine at a discounted price.

Quỳ passed away in January this year. Before he died he met some of the musicians and was able to share his musical words of wisdom. These three concerts held in his memory are a chance for us to come together to honour the work of this composer nicknamed the Beethoven of Vietnam. (Nguyễn Văn Quỳ 2 January 1925 to 27 January 2022)
