Themed “Image China,” the concert charmed the local audiences with a series of famous Chinese music pieces including violin concerto “the Butterfly Lovers,” piano concerto “the Yellow River,” and song “Ode to the Yangtze River.”

The concert was conducted by Christian Pollack and performed by the Vienna Hofburg Orchestra and a number of Chinese and Austrian musicians.

The event was co-hosted by China Arts and Entertainment Group and the Chinese Cultural Association in Austria.
