French-Canadian pianist and composer Alain Lefèvre will be performing in both HCMC and Hanoi this week

Well-known French Canadian pianist and composer Alain Lefèvre will perform at the Hanoi Opera House on May 15.

One of the Québécois pianists who have sold the greatest number of musical recordings, Lefèvre will play some of the works which have earned him an esteemed reputation, including "Dis-moi tout," "Vingt" and "Petite mere," as well as others by Francois Dompierre and André Mathieu considered two of Canada's most outstanding composers of the 20th century.

Lefèvre was born in Poitiers City, France, to a family of musicians. He learned to play piano at the age of four and won his first music award two years later at a piano contest in Quebec, Canada.

The 51-year-old artist, who admires Bach, Brahms, Chopin and Schubert, has released seven albums and has performed in 48 countries worldwide.

In 2009, he was made a Knight of the National Order of Quebec.

The Hanoi concert is followed the pianist's performance in Ho Chi Minh City on May 13.
