Musical Greetings from Moscow and Vienna

Moscow is far away. But it goes without saying that young Russian artists did not hesitate to undertake the long journey to Vienna for a good cause. Together with highly gifted soloist students of the AMADEUS Interntional School Vienna, pianists of the Gnessin Russian Academy of Music will perform a charity concert: “Greetings from Moscow and Vienna”.

07 November 2013 Events

The only widely famous “protagonist” contributing to the concert is the music itself. The artists are highly gifted, very young – and not yet known to a wider audience. This very fact adds so much flavour to the concert “Greetings from Moscow and Vienna”, which will be performed on November 10th, 2013, at the concert hall of the “Wiener Sängerknaben” Vienna Boys' Choir in Vienna.

Musical Programme Spanning Centuries

It is highly likely that some of the talented soloist students of the AMADEUS International School Vienna, aged 12 to 18, will one day embark on international careers. Their performance with the equally talented young pianists from the esteemed Gnessin Russian Academy of Music guarantees musical indulgence of the highest level. The sophisticated programme extends from Wolfgang Amadeus Mozart to Debussy and Haydn, and beyond to Verdi, Puccini, Chopin and other composers: an interesting cross-section of European musical history spanning centuries and culminating in the Piano Concerto No. 12 in A major (K. 414) by Mozart.

Creating Awareness for Children who fall Prey to Human Trafficking Worldwide

The concert is hosted under the patronage of the OSCE, the Organisation for Security and Co-operation in Europe, and is intended to create public awareness for human trafficking, one of the most shocking phenomena of our time. Social scientists estimate 27 million human beings fall prey to modern slavery, a quarter of them children. Dr Maria Grazia Giammarinaro, a representative of the OSCE, will address this topic in the opening ceremony. The concert, without doubt, will be an impressive testimony to the talent and skill of the young artists.
