Recuerdos de la Alhambra – guitarist Kim Chung

Vietnamese guitarist Kim Chung performs the popular Recuerdos de la Alhambra

The guitarist, whose full name is Nguyen Thi Kim Chung, stayed idle for a long time because she was not eager to perform in public and was operating a candle-making factory.

She now spends most of her time lecturing her students at HCM City Music Conservatory and writing arrangements of her favourite music pieces to be performed at her fourth live show guitar recital, which will celebrate the 55th anniversary of the conservatory’s founding.

Besides classical pieces by Vivaldi and Rodrigo, the guitarist will also perform several Vietnamese songs arranged herself and by musician Phuong Tuan Vu.

She will be accompanied by the HCM City Symphony and Orchestra at the beginning of the concert and then will take the stage for a solo performance.

“I will play songs in which I can perform the tremolo technique. I have also decided to organise a live concert of guitar music each year to serve classical-music fans,” she said. read more

I wanted to share this quote with you:

“At present, Kim Chung has no opponents in tremolo techniques,” said guitarist Pham Thanh Loc.

Do you agree with this?
