MOSCOW, August 12. /TASS/. Russia's iconic Red Army Choir, orchestra and dance ensemble start a European city tour next month to honour the 70th anniversary of Second World War victory against Nazi Germany.

The route takes the world-famous Aleksandrov Ensemble to venues in 40 cities. It starts in Hungary's capital, Budapest, on September 5 and finishes in Tallinn, Estonia's capital, on December 10.

"We have a large-scale tour this year," said Valentina Maksimova, the ensemble's press secretary." Our main aim is to remind people of the role of the Soviet Union’s Red Army in the liberation from Nazi occupation."

Concert venues hosting capacity audiences of 4,000 or more will ring to a range of music including folk tunes, hymns, operatic arias and popular music.

Aleksandrov Ensemble was founded in 1928 during Soviet times by Alexander Aleksandrov, a music professor at Moscow Conservatory. During World War Two, the ensemble gave 1,400 performances, including 742 on the front line, gaining recognition as the "Red Army Choir".
