Austria-Russia Music Evening in Vienna

Vienna, Austria - UPF-Austria in cooperation with the ensemble Rondo Danube Vienna organized a Russian-Austrian Concert on November 20 featuring works by Russian and Austrian composers, including the "Anna Polka" by Johann Strauss, the "Bumble Bee" by Rimsky-Korsakov, and selections from the "Nutcracker" composed by P.I. Tchaikovsky. There was film music from "Doctor Zhivago" composed by Maurice Jarre, the ballet "Romeo and Juliet" by Sergei Prokofiev, and as a finale the "Blue Danube Waltz." Viennese people really like such a mix of music, which brings a lighter spirit to the dark season of November and its grey weather.
