Both concerts will start at 9 p.m. and offer free entry, according to the Austrian Embassy. Vietnamese artists will be invited on stage to perform together with the two renowned artists.
This is the duo’s first visit to Asia but they have performed in various venues in Europe and just recently played at the Festival Jazz à Carthage in Tunisia, North Africa.
Dominik Fuss and Jorg Leichtfried will focus on exploring the borders between jazz tradition and classical and modern music. With Fuss’ strong sense of melody and Leichtfried’s harmonic support, the concerts are expected to take the audience on a journey covering pieces written by the duo as well as jazz standards.
After Vietnam, they will continue their Asia tour with concerts in Malaysia.
