HÀ NỘI — A musical project to honour the quintessence of Việt Nam’s modern music will be launched at the Tuổi Trẻ (Youth) Theatre on August 25.

As planned, the first trial period of the 100 Năm Âm Nhạc Việt Nam (100 Years of Việt Nam’s Music) project will last for two years, including 24 programmes, each of which will be performed monthly in the theatre.

According to a representative of the organising board, the project aims to introduce to the public the origins and development of the country’s modern music over the past century. The inclusive programmes are expected to inspire sincere emotions and subtle feelings, matching modern musical trends, with music lovers. The events will contain nostalgic elements, reviewing the history of the country’s music, and also mark the beginning of the new way of enjoying the music.

All programmes within 100 Years of Việt Nam’s Music project will include the participation of artists from the Youth Theatre and invited guests, including Vietnamese artists overseas. Artist Lê Khanh, the vice director of the theatre will perform as a story-teller, connecting the musical nights and creating interactions among attendees.

Many researchers of musical history have reckoned that Việt Nam’s modern music originated in the early 20th century, which was a historical period which included many changes in Vietnamese art and literature. Among the pioneers of Việt Nam’s modern music were musicians Trần Quang Quờn (1875-1946) and Nguyễn Văn Tuyên (1909-2009). In each of its different periods of development, artists have put their mark on the country’s musical legacy, and fans have listened along with it. — VNS
