Tokyo Symphony Orchestra at the Vienna Concert Hall

We bought tickets to a marvelous performance by Tokyo Symphony Orchestra at Jeunsse Musik.erleben (Vienna Concert Hall). This concert hall was the place where the King Rama 9 was invited in 1964 to view his own musical compositions performed and received overwhelmingly positive response from audiences and music lovers in Vienna at that time.
