An orchestra from eastern China's Jiangsu Province presented a concert of Chinese music at Vienna's Golden Hall Sunday evening in celebration of the 40th anniversary of the diplomatic ties with Austria.

The concert is also part of the 27th Chopin Festival and marks the first time for a Chinese musical group to perform in that major musical event.

With the subtitle "Music Attraction from Jiangsu Province", the symphony concert has demonstrated the cultural essence of the Chinese nation.

The orchestra performed a series of classic Chinese folk music works, including "The moon reflected on the Erquan Spring", "Yao Nationality Dance" and "Night Mooring at Maple Bridge".

This performance by the Jiangsu Symphony Orchestra has conquered the local audience.

The Chopin Festival was founded in 1985 by the International Chopin Association in Vienna to commemorate the famous poet and pianist Chopin.
