Greetings from Moscow and Vienna
Young musicians against human trafficking / An AMADEUS International School Vienna production

* abgespielt

Gifted young student soloists from the “AMADEUS International School Vienna” aged from 12 to 18, supported by outstanding young pianists from the Gnessin Russian Academy of Music in Moscow, appear together in a concert designed to raise awareness of human trafficking, especially the trafficking of children. Social scientists estimate that there are currently 27 million victims of human trafficking around the world, of whom a quarter are children. Performing under the auspices of the Organisation for Security and Cooperation in Europe (OSCE), these young artists from Moscow and Vienna will demonstrate their exceptional musical talent in a programme of virtuoso masterpieces. The Gnessin Academy is a celebrated school of music in the Russian capital whose students regularly go on to pursue professional careers on the concert platform. Since it opened in 2012, AMADEUS Vienna has already established itself as a magnet for very young international musicians who want to study in Vienna, the musical metropolis. You will be astonished by the musical talents of these young people. At the same time this concert reminds us of the urgent need to be aware of – and to address – that most shocking phenomenon of our times: modern-day slavery.
