Program notes

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 2015, a conducting luminary with four previous appearances at the Vienna Philharmonic New Year's Concert returned to lead the festivities: the great Zubin Mehta. For his fifth edition, Mehta and the orchestra begin the show with von Suppé's Overture from Morning, Noon and Night in Vienna, a tribute to the city's majesty and joie de vivre. Exuberant dances by the Strauss family dynasty and Danish composer Hans Christian Lumbye then fill the stunning Musikverein with a celebratory ambiance befitting the occasion.
