The 100th Birthday of KARLROBERT KREITEN

“This CD release contains the complete preserved recordings of Karlrobert Kreiten. This explains the fact that certain pieces are presented in two different versions, along with two further recordings whose quality might be deemed unacceptable, yet which we have nevertheless included as a sort of postscript at the end. Indeed, such poor recording quality emblematically reflects the problematic handling of Karlrobert Kreiten’s legacy. For many years, no document of Kreiten’s piano playing had ever surfaced. In 1983, however, Emmy Kreiten-Barido finally authorized the Thorofon firm to publish some of her late son’s private recordings as part of a commemorative LP. The original phonograph records used as a basis for that LP are apparently lost; thus, for the current release, we have had to retrace the steps presumably taken in the course of the 1983 mastering process in order to process the signal with the digital techniques now available....”

As a brand name, the Vienna New Year’s Concert can trace back its origins to 31 December 1939. In other words, the concert initially took place on the last day of the year. By 1941, however, it was being held on 1 January, when the Vienna Philharmonic established a tradition that continues to flourish to this day.

The list of names of leading conductors who have led the Vienna Philharmonic’s New Year’s Concerts reads like a veritable Who’s Who of great maestros: including Herbert von Karajan, Lorin Maazel, Claudio Abbado, Carlos Kleiber, Zubin Mehta, Riccardo Muti, Nikolaus Harnoncourt, Seiji Ozawa, Mariss Jansons, and Franz Welser-Möst.

It is not least thanks to this illustrious succession of great conductors that the Vienna New Year’s Concert remains unique, ushering in the New Year in a way that has often been imitated but never equaled. Its universal popularity is undoubtedly due to the direct – or deferred – live broadcast from the flower-filled Golden Hall of the Vienna Musikverein. The first broadcast went out on Eurovision in 1959, the first colour relay in 1967. Now the concert is shown in countries throughout almost the entire world.

It continues to be works by members of the Strauss family – Johann Strauss Father and Son as well as Eduard and Josef Strauss – that are central to this media event. Old favourites from their output are heard alongside others that have never been recorded or are only rarely heard; all of them programmed around two fixed points in the concert: the Blue Danube Waltz and the Radetzky March.

Gustavo Dudamel's skillful conducting and dedication to music drew international attention while he was just in his twenties and continues to attract diverse audiences throughout the world.

Dudamel began violin lessons at the age of 10 in Venezuela's El Sistema music programme and then began studying conducting in 1995 with Rodolfo Saglimbeni. In 1999 he was named music director of the programe's Simón Bolívar Youth Orchestra, studying with El Sistema's founder, José Antonio Abreu. Just five years later, Dudamel won the inaugural Bamberger Symphoniker Gustav Mahler Competition, and became a highly sought-after orchestral and opera conductor, working with such ensembles as the Chicago Symphony, the New York Philharmonic, the City of Birmingham Symphony, the Israel Philharmonic, and the Dresden Staatskapelle. In 2007, he became music director of the Gothenburg Symphony, with which he remained until 2012. That same year, Dudamel was the first conductor under the age of 30 in many years to be appointed to a major orchestra when he was named music director of the Los Angeles Philharmonic beginning with the 2009-2010 season. Dudamel's position with the LA Philharmonic was extended through its 100th anniversary season.

Die Fledermaus Overture


Live Concert from the Heldenplatz Vienna, 1999

Few artist families dominated the light music scene of the 19th century in the same way as the Strauss dynasty. And even 150 years after the death of the “Waltz King“ Johann Strauss senior and over 100 years after the passing of his son Johann Strauss junior, their dance compositions still pack concert halls around the world with throngs of eager spectators. In 1999, the Strauss anniversary year, the Vienna Philharmonic came up with a very special approach to honouring the musical father and son: An Open Air Concert in the heart of Vienna featuring works by Johann Strauss senior who, together with his son, cemented the reputation of this beautiful city on the Danube as the world capital of waltz. An audience of almost 8000 people was treated to the captivating sounds of their immortal melodies in the imposing atmosphere of the Heldenplatz (Heroes‘ Square) in the Austrian capital. Spanish tenor José Carreras and the Hungarian soprano Andrea Rost, longtime favourites with Vienna opera fans, were both invited to sing arias and duets at the Johann Strauss Gala under the baton of maestro Zubin Mehta. Inspired by the enthusiasm of the crowd, Mehta was moved to play the “Radetzky March“ as an encore – the traditional closing piece at every Strauss concert.
