The New Year's Concert

It has long been a Philharmonic tradition at the New Year to present a program consisting of the lively and at the same time nostalgic music from the vast repertoire of the family of Johann Strauss and its contemporaries. These concerts not only delight the audiences in the Musikverein in Vienna, but also enjoy great international popularity through the worldwide television broadcast, which now reaches over 90 countries.

Fascinating Music of the Strauss Dynasty

Originating during the darkest chapter in Austria's history, these concerts have continually grown in popularity in the decades since, which can be attributed to the verve and creative energy of the compositions of the Strauss dynasty, as well as their authoritative interpretations. Today millions of people throughout the world draw joy and optimism for the New Year ahead through the light-hearted yet subtly profound character of this music.

Masterpieces of the Genre

It is the desire of the Philharmonic not only to provide musically definitive interpretations of the masterworks of this genre, but at the same time, as musical ambassadors of Austria, to send people all over the world a New Year's greeting in the spirit of hope, friendship and peace.
