From the organizer:

“Les Adieux” is the name of pianist Nguyễn Đức Anh’s second piano recital. This is the second of Duc Anh’s solo Beethoven piano recital series titled “The Journey of Endless Creativity,” which features all 32 piano sonatas by Beethoven. The name is derived from Sonata Opus 81a, numbered as the 26th, Les Adieux, which means “Farewell.” It also serves as the title of this program.

Words like “Farewell,” “Goodbye,” or “Parting” often lead us to a sentimental and nostalgic mood. This sentiment was no different for Beethoven when he had to bid farewell to his patron Archduke Rudolf, one of his close friends, who had a significant influence on his development. If parting can be seen as a situation, through the three music chapters that Beethoven titled “Farewell – Absence – Reunion,” we will witness the significant emotional evolution of separation through this sonata. It is a fundamental message that the artist wants to convey to the audience. Unlike in viewing paintings, where we can gain a comprehensive insight from the outset, listening to music may not provide us with a thorough understanding of the world from the initial moments, the initial bars. However, as we accompany the music and allow it to envelop us, interesting discoveries will gradually unfold.

With four sonatas, including No. 3 (Op. 2 No. 3), No. 6 (Op. 10 No. 2), No. 26 (Op. 81a), and No. 27 (Op. 90), Saigon Classical, Arietta Việt Nam, and the artist Nguyễn Đức Anh hope that every listener in attendance will have a new experience when they listen to this concert by relaxing and aligning their emotions with the music. Spanning two separate and distant creative periods, the journey of these remarkable works aims to provide the audience with a comprehensive insight into the intellectual development of the great Ludwig van Beethoven.
