*2 VII 1958 Hanoi

One of the foremost musicians of our times, the Vietnamese pianist Dang Thai Son became the first Asian to win First Prize in the International Fryderyk Chopin Piano Competition in Warsaw (1980). He studied first with his mother in Vietnam, then with Vladimir Natanson and Dmitry Bashkirov at the Pyotr Tchaikovsky Conservatory in Moscow. He has performed with the most outstanding orchestras and conductors in prestigious halls around the world. He has taken part in historic artistic events, including a grand concert organised by the Japanese television broadcaster NHK, together with Kathleen Battle, Yo-Yo Ma, Seiji Ozawa and Mstislav Rostropovich (1995), Isaac Stern’s last festival in Miyazaki, Japan (2001), and a grand gala concert marking the bicentenary of Chopin’s birth, in Warsaw (2010). He has performed many times in the ‘Chopin and his Europe’ festival organised by the Fryderyk Chopin Institute. He currently teaches at the Université de Montreal as a guest professor, and from this year he will be giving lessons at Oberlin Conservatory of Music in the US. He has been a juror of many prestigious competitions, including the Clara Haskil (Switzerland), Rachmaninov and Richter (Russia), Chopin (Poland) and Arthur Rubinstein (Tel Aviv). He has made many recordings for such labels as Deutsche Grammophon, CBS Sony and Victor JVC. His disc of Chopin’s concertos recorded with the Orchestra of the Eighteenth Century and Frans Brüggen for the Fryderyk Chopin Institute’s label was awarded a platinum disc in Poland. In 2017, the Institute released a Paderewski disc featuring a selection of solo works and also the Piano Concerto in A minor, recorded at the ‘Chopin and his Europe’ festival in 2015 (Philharmonia Orchestra with Vladimir Ashkenazy). That recording won ResMusica magazine’s La clef du mois award.
