National Children’s Symphony Orchestra of Venezuela & White Hands Choir Venezuela, Simon Rattle, Maybeth Garcia & Luis Chinchill

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.

“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

“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

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

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.

In 1999, Barenboim and the late Palestinian academic Edward Säid founded the West-Eastern Divan Orchestra, in which young musicians from the Middle East and Israel perform together. Among the many awards Barenboim has received, was the Ernst von Siemens Music Prize in Vienna in 2006. In September 2007 Barenboim was named as United Nations Peace Envoy.

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.
