Duos - Alone - Tri Nguyen on Đàn-tranh and piano

Duos-Alone - the latest album from Vietnamese virtuoso Tri Nguyen – releases 11th August 2023 on Naxos World. For Tri Nguyen, Duos-Alone is a deeply personal project. Composed as a musical letter of love to his late mother, the album explores Tri’s intimate thoughts on life, family, culture, the value of memories and the profound impact of maternal devotion. These private contemplations are shared through the sounds of the piano and the Vietnamese zither known as the đàn-tranh. Nguyen’s mastery of these instruments is matched by his ingenuity.

Zeyn’el - Divan & Divine

The songs of Divan & Divine are inspired by the poems of the Anatolian troubadours of the 14th to 16th centuries, yet they touch upon and translate to the prejudices suffered by many today.
