Event

The Austrian Cultural Season in Belarus will begin with a unique classical concert on the stage of the Belarusian State Philharmonic. The State Chamber Orchestra of Republic of Belarus, directed by Evgeny Bushkov, will perform with a special guest star, one of the finest and most charismatic violinists of her generation, Elena Denisova (Austria). The concert will feature works by Viennese classical masters (Mozart, Beethoven, etc.) and selected miniatures by turn-of-the-century Austrian composer Fritz Kreisler. The climax will be the world premiere of a piece by one of Austria’s most recognized contemporary composers, Gabriele Proy.
