The 2010 Vienna Philharmonic New Year's Concert With Georges Prêtre


One of the most anticipated events of the classical calendar, the Vienna Philharmonic's exquisite New Year's Concert brings the musicians of the prestigious orchestra together under the baton of a different influential conductor each year. Centered around a wide variety of dances in the Viennese style—especially the world-famous waltzes of the Strauss family—every edition brims with stately serenity and a hint of mischief, the perfect way to begin your New Year in music.

In this 2010 edition, the world-class Vienna Philharmonic team up with the acclaimed Georges Prêtre, a favorite collaborator of the divine Maria Callas, for a dynamic program with comic opera panache. After the immortal Overture from Die Fledermaus, the ensemble treat us to a feast of works by Offenbach, Otto Nicolai, Hans Christian Lumbye, and—of course—Johann Strauss, Sr. and Jr.
