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.

Sony Classical is pleased to announce the release of the recording of one of the world’s most famous classical music events: the 2012 New Year’s Concert with the Vienna Philharmonic. Latvian conductor Mariss Jansons returns to direct the 2012 celebrations after his acclaimed debut in 2006. The live recording encompasses releases on CD, DVD and Blu-ray.

The annual New Year's Day Concert in the stunning Vienna Musikverein has been an exalted tradition for more than seven decades, and the resulting recordings with works from the Strauss dynasty and their contemporaries are among the classical market's most important releases. The concert will be broadcast on TV and radio to over 70 countries around the world with an estimate of more than 40 million viewers.

The programme traditionally revolves around waltzes and polkas by the Strauss family (Johann father and son as well as Josef and Eduard Strauss) whose music has enjoyed a recent resurgence due to the success of André Rieu and his Johann Strauss Orchestra. In 2012 the programme is once again a skilful blend of well-known classics and six New Year’s Concert premieres. As always the concert is bound to end with two traditional encores – the famous waltz The Blue Danube and the Radetzky March.

“It is something quite special: a wonderful opportunity to listen to this music and get to know it. This atmosphere, the Vienna Philharmonic, the Golden Hall of the Musikverein – all that adds up to a long and wonderful tradition resulting in fantastic, very specific music.” Mariss Jansons

Read Presto's complete review of this disc here.

“There's nothing here that disappoints, and the stylishness of the performances can be taken for granted, if not by the musicians themselves...the recording is excellent in capturing a happy occasion.” International Record Review, May 2012

“Jansons brings his characteristic poise and elegance to bear on the ‘Strauss Family and Friends’ programme to scintillating effect...The programme is imaginatively planned, with fast-and-furious polkas acting as a palette-cleanser between the lush waltzes.” Katherine Cooper, Presto Classical, 16th January 2012

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.

El Sistema is the international famous phenomenon from Venezuela and the invitation of the National Children´s Symphony Orchestra of Venezuela and the White Hands Choir to the Salzburg Festival 2013 show their musical and educational quality. Conducted by Sir Simon Rattle who said about El Sistema: “When I first conducted the Infantil Orchestra in Caracas, I could not believe that children as young as nine and never older than 14 could not only play all the notes, but also could make such wonderful music. It is exhilarating and life-enhancing. This is, quite simply, the future of music. Those of you lucky enough to hear the concerts will see why”, this concert shows the joy and the musical quality of the orchestra, which thrilled the audience!

“The players attack [Ginastera's] life-affirming score with unalloyed confidence and joy...The sight and sound of these youngsters playing this great music [the Mahler] with such complete commitment is heart-warming...The second film follows the visit to Salzburg by members of the White Hands Choir...There is many a professional able-bodied Western choir who cannot touch the heart quite like these blind and deaf youngsters.” Gramophone Magazine, October 2014

The New Year’s Concert live from Vienna is one of the world’s most famous and spectacular classical music events & has been for over 70 years. Broadcasted on TV and radio in almost 80 countries around the world, attracting more than 40 million viewers. These recordings, with works from the Strauss dynasty and their contemporaries are among the classical market's most important releases. In 2014 The Vienna Philharmonic has invited Daniel Barenboim to conduct the New Year's Concert, revolving around waltzes and polkas by the Strauss family (Johann father and son, as well as Josef and Eduard Strauss), and includes works by other composers of that era. The Vienna New Year’s Concert can trace back its origins to 31 December 1939. 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.

Read Presto's complete review of this disc here.

“Recent New Year’s Day concerts have been flat affairs, but the champagne spirit flows freely in Daniel Barenboim’s second stint on the podium...The plums (encores apart) are a seductive Tales from the Vienna Woods (Johann II) and a gorgeous Moonlight Interlude from Capriccio” Sunday Times, 16th February 2014

“The themes of reconciliation, empathy and peace are subtly in evidence throughout the first part of the programme...Despite his associations with more heavyweight Austrian composers, Barenboim never overplays his hand and has the idiom absolutely off-pat...he shapes and paces things quite beautifully, revealing all sorts of detail and preventing things from ever becoming too bombastic or four-square.” Katherine Cooper, Presto Classical, 3rd February 2014
