Austria is considered one of the birthplaces of classical music and its big composers like Mozart, Beethoven or Hayden – just to name a few. Music is still a big part of Austrian tradition and everyday life and plays an active role in local culture. Because of this heritage Austria is proud to provide a place for education for young and rising artists from all over the world. China high interest in classical music, on the other side, is home to very gifted talents. An exchange of potentials therefore will enrich both countries.
