From the organizer:
Pianist and composer Francesco Tristano returns to Hanoi for a piano concert at the Hanoi Opera House, on June 25 2012. Francesco Tristano will perform works by Girolamo Frescobaldi, Domenico Scarlatti and Igor Stravinsky along with his own contemporary upbeat compositions. In addition, on 26 Jun, he will be playing at ATK.
The concert at the Opera House – which is by invitation only! – will showcase Tristano’s passion for classic and contemporary music. Francesco performed at the Opera House in 2011 and provided several master classes to a group of skillful students of the Vietnam National Music Academy.
Francesco Tristano discovered the piano at the age of five. Aged 13, he played his first concert, presenting his own compositions. He later toured both as a soloist and with renowned orchestras, such as the Russian National Orchestra, the French National Orchestra of Lille and the Philharmonie Luxembourg.
Tristano founded the chamber ensemble, The New Bach Players, with whom he has also performed as a conductor. Tristano is one of the last students at New York’s Juilliard School to complete Bach legend Rosalyn Tureck’s master class. He also studied at the music academies in Brussels, Riga, Paris and Luxembourg as well as the ESMUC in Barcelona. In 2004, he won the first prize at the International piano competition for contemporary music in Orléans, France.
Tristano has released twelve albums, among them recordings of Bach Goldberg Variations and complete keyboard concertos, Luciano Berio complete piano works, and Girolamo Frescobaldi Toccatas. Not for Piano (2007), presented his own compositions as well as classics at the piano. More recently, Tristano has signed with Universal Classics & Jazz. His first project, bachCage, produced by Moritz von Oswald, was released on Deutsche Grammophon in March 2011.
