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 Johann Strauss family and its contemporaries. These concerts not only delight the audiences in the Musikverein in Vienna, but also enjoy great international popularity through the world wide 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.

New Year's Concert 2014 with Daniel Barenboim

The 74th annual New Year's Concert of the Vienna Philharmonic took place on January 1, 2014, under the baton of Daniel Barenboim in the Golden Hall of the Musikverein. This year the concert was televised in over 90 countries with 16 cameras in use to capture the broadcast images. In the year 2014, the 100th anniversary of the outbreak of World War I will be commemorated. Therefore the Vienna Philharmonic considered it to be essentially relevant to invite peace activist Daniel Barenboim for the New Year's Concert 2014 and to set a corresponding emphasis in the program.
