Talk: at home with Vietnamese Composer Nguyễn Văn Quỳ

July 13, 2019 @ 3:00 PM - 4:30 PM


On 30 October 2018 FVH and UNIS Hanoi staged a very successful and moving evening where we paid tribute to Nguyễn Văn Quỳ’s sonatas, songs and poetry.  Quỳ, nicknamed the Beethoven of Vietnam, while frail still retains a very sharp focused mind.  He loves meeting people especially those interested in music, French, his life, Vietnam, teaching etc. He has always said his 3 passions in life are Vietnam, teaching and music.

We decided it would be meaningful and fun for small groups of FVH members to visit him at his home (in the Old Quarter).  This is your chance to talk to the Maestro, listen to his memories, his love of music and see society through the eyes of this 94 yr old composer. The format is relaxed and more of a Q&A chat with an old friend.

All proceeds go to Quỳ donations of 200,000 vnd pp

He speaks Vietnamese, French and English (but he prefers speaking French – we will have someone to translate)

Due to space limitation and allowing for people to be present to support Quy the max number of spaces available is 6.

For FVH members who are musicians and/or have a special love of music we can probably arrange a specialised talk with him +create a music group to meet him regularly.  Also he can still teach the theory of music.

For more information/RSVP please contact Stella

His address will be sent to those who sign up + notes on his biog. and links to his music.
