Grammy-winning Russian orchestra to perform in Hanoi

The Russian National Orchestra will have their first-ever concert in Vietnam this October. Their performance will be part of the annual Vietnam Airlines Classic – Hanoi Concert, organized by the national carrier since 2017.

Under the baton of Spanish conductor César Álvarez, the Orchestra will open the event with Việt Nam’s national anthem, Tiến Quân Ca (The Marching Song) that has been arranged by composer Đỗ Hồng Quân for the symphony orchestra.

The orchestra will present a repertoire featuring several other famous compositions by renowned composers.

The Russian National Orchestra was founded in Moscow in 1990 by conductor Mikhail Pletnev and is one of the brightest symbols of traditional Russian music.

In 2004, it became the first orchestra in the history of Russian symphony orchestras to receive a Grammy Award.

The most prestigious music magazine in Europe, Gramophone, has ranked the orchestra among the world's top 20 orchestras.

The concert will take place over two nights, October 12-13./.
