Every New Year, the highlight in the classical music world is the annual concert given by the Vienna Philharmonic Orchestra. In 2003, the honour of conducting this special concert was handed to Nikolaus Harnoncourt, who admits that he was touched to receive this special invitation. Harnoncourt chose to focus the night‘s music on the Straußes - both Johann Sr. and Johann Jr., as well as Josef - and chose pieces that had not been heard at any of the previous New Year‘s concerts. Also included were Brahms‘ Hungarian Dances and Weber‘s Invitation to the Dance.

The New Year's Concert in Vienna has been a glorious tradition for over six decades. A best-selling classical event year on year, the concert has unique global appeal. It is broadcast on TV and radio to over 50 countries, and is viewed by tens of millions of people all over the world.

The 2009 New Year's Day Concert will be conducted by the Argentinean-Israeli pianist and conductor Daniel Barenboim for the first time. From 1991-2006 Barenboim was the principal conductor of the Chicago Symphony Orchestra and since 1992 has been the General Music Director of the State Opera Unter den Linden in Berlin. Barenboim's debut with the Vienna Philharmonic took place in 1989, and he has since been a regular guest.

The concert programme for 1st January 2009 will be the customary collection of Viennese delights, with six first time performances.

The first part of the concert is inspired by the conductor's biography. For example, the waltz Märchen aus dem Orient (Tales from the Orient), alludes to a modern "fairy tale" - the founding of the West-Eastern Divan Orchestra, a symbol of inter-cultural tolerance. Other first performances in the first half include J. Strauss II's Schnellpost-Polka (Express Mail Polka) and J. Hellmesberger's Valse Espagnole (Spanish Waltz).

The second part of the concert makes constant allusions to the life and work of Joseph Haydn, culminating with the final movement of Haydn's Symphony No.45 - 'Farewell Symphony'. This is the first time a work by Haydn has featured in the New Year's Concert programme, and it will launch a year of events marking the bicentenary of the death of this great Austrian composerwho died in Vienna in May 1809. Other first appearances in the second half of the concert include J. Strauss I's Zampa-Galopp and J. Strauss II's Alexandrine's Polka.

“This year, Daniel Barenboim took his first Vienna New Year assignment in 20 years, conducting the city's venerably Philharmonic. It throws up interesting music-making, the conductor's strong romantic streak making him more than usually liable to weave poetic magic from the many lingeringly expressive episodes in the Strauss family's music. Witness, for example, the heady surges of glorious string tone punctuating 'Rosen aus dem Süden'.” BBC Music Magazine, April 2009 ****
