Pianist Dang Thai Son

Son was the first Asian to receive the First Prize and Gold Medal at the International Chopin Piano Competition in Warsaw in 1980. Now he lives in Canada, but he returns to Vietnam almost every year.

The concert is a part of the International Piano Festival which will open on December 2 in HCM City and December 4 in Hanoi.

This will be the first time Son performs works from Vietnamese composers Do Hong Quan and Dang Huu Phuc besides the works of Claude Debussy and Francis Poulenc.

Young talented pianist Luu Hong Quang, who has studied at the Australian International Conservatory of Music and won a number of prizes at international contests, will join Son's performance for the first time.
