British-Vietnamese Tra Nguyen gave her first concert, performing Mozart’s Piano Concerto No. 23, K488, with the Hanoi Conservatory Orchestra.
Since then she has continued to engage audiences in other important venues worldwide. Recent and future performances include Queen Elizabeth Hall, Tokyo Opera City, Hong Kong City Recital Hall, Cadogan Hall and Wigmore Hall. Her imaginative programming balances core repertoire and lesser-known music, winning critical praise. Her discography introduces many world première recordings of neglected music. Volumes 1–6 of her recordings of Joachim Raff’s piano music have earned wide critical acclaim, including Album of the Week awards by The Independent. Tra Nguyen studied with Lev Naumov at the Moscow Conservatory and with Christopher Elton at the Royal Academy of Music. She was awarded the ARAM (Associate of the Royal Academy of Music) for her “signicant contribution to the music profession” in 2013.
