New Year's Concert Press Conference on December 28th

Georges Prêtre, Clemens Hellsberg

The Vienna Philharmonic New Year's Concert 2010 was presented to the media in a press conference on December 28th. Philharmonic Chairman Clemens Hellsberg was joined on the podium by conductor Georges Prêtre, ORF General Director Alexander Wrabetz and fashion designer Valentino, who designed the costumes for the ballet on invitation of the ORF. Georges Prêtre conducts the New Year's Concert for the second time and professes great affinity for the music of the Strauss family. His enthusiasm and the great success of the concert in 2008 was something that, as Hellsberg explained, "…we wanted to repeat as soon as possible". The New Year's Concert 2010 will once again be a global event, being broadcast on television live or time-delayed in 72 countries.
