NDO – Guitarist Michel Grizard and his daughter Helena Cueto from France will offer a free concert at L'Espace French Cultural Centre in Hanoi, at 8pm, on June 23, as part of the activities under the framework of the 2018 International Music Festival.

The music night, featuring a combination of flamenco and classical guitar, promises to provide the audience with an exciting experience and attract people to hear the melody.

Michel Grizard, a virtuoso guitarist and winner of many international prizes, will grace the stage of L’Espace with his daughter, Helena Cueto, a brilliant flamenco dancer to introduce to Hanoi a recital performance of flamenco dance and classical guitar, creating a moment of beauty and grace.

Michel Grizard studied guitar with Ramón Cueto and Alexandre Lagoya in Paris, where he won first prize for guitar and chamber music (DFS).

Winner of several international competitions - Belgrade and Taranto in particular - he has performed in recitals in Europe, Asia and the USA, simultaneously conducting many master classes in musical institutions such as Dublin's Irish Royal Academy of Music and the National Conservatory and the Ankara Institute.

He also plays in a quartet of guitars from Versailles, the first formation of this type in France, and with his wife Cécile Grizard in a cello and guitar duet.

Meanwhile, Helena Grizard Cueto was born in 1988 in Nantes, in a French-Spanish family with a long tradition of musicians.

Currently, in addition to research work, Helena Cueto also performs in France and many countries around the world and has collaborated with many international artists.
