Frankfurt am Main hosted a concert of the Eurasian Symphonic Orchestra under the direction of the People's Artist of Kazakhstan Aiman Mussakhajayeva. The performance was devoted to the 25th anniversary of the establishment of diplomatic relations between Kazakhstan and Germany. Prominent politicians, diplomats, and art connoisseurs attended the event. The program includes not only well known classical compositions but also national works. The ensemble of dombra players caused a special delight among the audience. The magnificent sound and truly virtuosic game of our musicians won the audience. The spectators warmly greeted the ensemble of Aigolek violinists, too.
