Mar 9, 8 pm
Ho Chi Minh City Opera House, No. 7 Lam Son Square, District 1
The show will also introduce Symphony No. 36 of the greatest musical genius, Wolfgang Amadeus Mozart. This symphony has an interesting background. For many other famous composers, it takes months or a year to complete a symphony, sometimes up to several years, as this is the largest, most complex genre for instrumental music. But Mozart completed his Symphony No. 36 in four days, during a trip with his wife in Linz, Austria, in response to the proposal of a local count.
