Japanese jazz pianist to perform in Vietnam

Japanese jazz pianist Yamashita Yosuke will greet Vietnamese audiences at a concert at the Hanoi Opera House on Feb. 25-26.

The performance marks Yamashita’s 70 th birthday and is the second performance he has made in Vietnam following the first in December, 2009.

Yamashita will play alongside three Vietnamese saxophonists - Quyen Van Minh, Quyen Thien Dac and Nguyen Bao Long.

The Japanese and Vietnamese musicians will entertain audiences with famous pieces such as “Rhapsody in Blue” by George Gershwin, “Take the ‘A’ train” by Billy Strayhorn and Duke Ellington, “Moonlight Serenade” by Glenn Miller and “ Mt. Semba ” composed by Yamashita Yosuke himself.

Yamashita is a familiar name in many prestigious international jazz festivals and stages. In 1988 he formed the New York Trio and six years later he was invited to join the ceremony marking 50 years of Verve Records, an American jazz label, at Carnegie Hall.

Yamashita also wrote music for many Japanese films and in 2003 he was awarded the Imperial Medal of Honor by the Japanese government for his contributions to the arts and academia. (Source: VNA)
