Big American applause for Vietnamese poem (February 13, 2004)

With the performance of "Huong (Perfume) River Afternoon" the American orchestra, Orpheus, last Saturday won big applause from the fully-packed Carnegie Hall audience, making it a successful debut on the 2004 performance programme.

The concert was composed by Paul Chichara from Vietnamese poet Nguyen Khoa Diem's work of the same name.

Chichara told that the "Huong River Afternoon" poem created a special passion in him for it was written in the context of a devastating war, but there was no hint of death, anger or bitterness. On the contrary, the poem depicted a wonderful peaceful moment by the Huong River, seemingly holding the war at bay.

American composer Paul Chichara, born in 1938 in Seattle, Washington, is very famous in the US and Europe, especially as a composer for the movies. He now works for the University of California at Los Angeles (UCLA).
