A night of Chopin will be performed by pianist Krystian Tkaczewski at the Vietnam National Academy of Music (VNAM), 77 Hao Nam Street, Hanoi, on June 20.

The concert, to be co-organised by VNAM and the Polish Embassy in Hanoi, will bring one of the most talented Polish pianists to local audiences.

Born in 1980 in Tarnow, Poland, Tkaczewski has been hailed as a virtuoso. He graduated from the Academy of Music in Wroclaw with a Master of Arts degree.

Presently, he is pursuing a doctorate in musical arts at the University of Hartford, Connecticut, in the US. Tkaczewski has performed in 15 countries across four continents.

His debut performance at Carnegie Hall in 2007 was very well-received.

He will give master classes at VNAM from June 19-20 before the solo performance.-VNA
