The 20th century saw the transformation and explosion of new musical styles and languages. Influenced by countless dark historical events, composers all felt the traditional musical language was no longer relevant to the contemporary social context. Each composer finds different ways to express the voice of the times, using a new tonal system, a harmony system of his own, experimenting with new extended techniques on the instrument to create new sounds, or even throwing away elements that are considered unnecessary to completely remove any barrier to creativity.
The 20th century music concert series, in collaboration between the Goethe Institut Hanoi and Inspirito School of Music to introduce compositions of the 20th and 21st centuries, has organised 6 concerts in 2021. Many of the compositions in the series were Vietnam premieres, including young composer Pho Duc Hoang of Vietnam.
