The second of three concerts in Italian Music Month will feature the great flutist Andrea Griminelli performing at Hanoi Opera House.

Andrea Griminelli began playing the flute at the age of ten and studied with legendary flutists Jean-Pierre Rampal and Sir James Galway.
In 1984, at the age of 25 he was invited by Luciano Pavarotti to perform in Pavarotti’s now famous concert in New York’s Madison Square Garden. This was the beginning of a long-standing collaboration with the great tenor that led to unforgettable performances in London’s Hyde Park, New York’s Central Park, the Eiffel Tower in Paris and Red Square in Moscow. Throughout his career Griminelli has travelled extensively, performing tours in Europe, Japan, South America and United States. Andrea Griminelli participated in the final concert for the closing celebrations of the South Africa 2010 Fifa World Cup. His Asian tour 2010 included concerts in Tokyo, Seoul, Hong Kong, Taipei, Singapore. Andrea Griminelli returns to Vietnam after the remarkable success at Hanoi Opera House in 2008 and will be accompanied by Singaporean pianist Lim Yan.
