and appropriate style with a concert by distinguished vocal and
pianistic talents that have found their artistic home in Vienna.

almost a generation, the outstanding personality of the ensemble,
Mrs Yi CHEN, has been working as a distinguished teacher
and accompanist, currently at the Gustav Mahler Conservatory in
Vienna, to further the careers of promising artists. As an Austrian,
she is far more likely to greet visitors with a jovial "gruess
gott" than with "ni hao."
tradition is firmly established: Every year she engages prominent
artists and specialists in areas such as stage direction and vocal
technique to prepare specially selected soloists for concerts in
such renowned venues as the Kaisersaal or the Boesendorfer-Saal,
events that have proven stepping stones to great careers. The finest
performers can expect to appear on stage in China several weeks
later, accompanied by the symphony orchestra of the Chinese National
Opera in Beijing.

here in Berlin please judge for yourselves whose star will
rise to world prominence in the future. We will hear the prizewinning
multi-talented soprano Yvonne JI with bravura arias such
as that of the Queen of the Night, as well as soprano Yang JIAO
and mezzosoprano Ge SONG with a breathtaking string
of musical pearls ranging from famous baroque oratorios and romantic
songs to the Viennese operetta "Die Fledermaus."

the young pianist Dan ZHOU, who studied with the same professor
as Lang LANG, will render the famous sonata "Appassionata"

that may let you revise your standards of musical excellence!
delights of exquisite Austrian wine during intermission will titillate
our palates and prepare us for the crowning finale but remember
