Praised for his “gorgeous playing” with “flawless technique” by the KnoxTNToday and considered as a “Vietnamese guitar virtuoso” by Austin Classical Guitar, guitarist An Tran has captivated audiences throughout North America and Asia. Most recent seasons brought An to different parts of the world, including recitals for Bangkok Guitar Society, Austin Classical Guitar, Toronto International Guitar Series and many more. Upcoming 2019-20 season highlight include An’s solo concert at the prestigious Segovia Classical Guitar Series in Chicago, USA in May 2020.
Deeply connected to his native country of Vietnam, the internationally acclaimed guitarist is committed to bring Vietnamese music to the international concert halls. An is working with Vietnamese composers to create new compositions for the guitar. Most recent work, Ru Con (Lullaby), was written for An by composer/guitarist Nguyễn Thế An in February 2019 (World Premiered in Toronto, March 2019). A debut CD of an all-Vietnamese repertoire is to be released in early 2020.
An has been invited to various guitar festivals to teach, perform and judge such as New Orleans International Guitar Festival, Hamilton International Guitar Festival (Canada), Lone Star Guitar Festival (Texas), among others.
