HÀ NỘI  The Âm Nhạc Mùa Thu (Autumn Music) contest, organised by the ministry of culture’s Department of Performing Art and related entities, celebrated and identified talented musicians on Saturday in Hà Nội.

At different age categories, pianists Trần Quang Minh, Nguyễn Hoàng Phương Thy, and Hồ Thiên Phước secured the first prizes. In the violin section, Nguyễn Vũ Trường Giang and Cao Hoàng Lan emerged as winners.

A collective comprising flutist Lê Thư Hương, pianist Trần Thị Tâm Ngọc, and oboist Hoàng Mạnh Lâm clinched the first prize in the chamber music ensembles category.

The competition attracted 170 participants, including 52 pianists from the Việt Nam National Academy of Music (VNAM) and the HCM City Conservatory.

"New talents were found at the contest," said Prof Ngô Văn Thành, former of VNAM. 

At the 2023 National Opera - Choir Competition held by the ministry, top contestants were honoured at the same time. 

Trần Quang Cảnh and Lê Thị Minh Ngọc are the winners in group A for 18-23 years old. The winners in group B for 24 years old and up are Nguyễn Thị Hà My, Trần Quốc Đạt and Đỗ Vũ Lan Nhung.

The two contests were held from November 26 to December 2 in Hà Nội. The organisation at the same time is important and necessary for the development of professional music training in Việt Nam, according to Acting Director of the Department of Performing Arts Trần Ly Ly.

"The contests are also opportunities for art managers and researchers to evaluate music training nationwide over recent years," Ly said.

"Through the contests, solutions in training, discovering young talents and providing human resources are designed with a view to regional and international integration."

The contests are chances for local audiences to enjoy classic musical works composed by international and Vietnamese musicians.  VNS
