Vienna Philharmonic New Year's Concert 2011 with Franz Welser-Möst

Vienna Philharmonic
New Year's Concert 2011
with Franz Welser-Möst

The Vienna Philharmonic under Franz Welser-Möst ushered in the New Year in traditional fashion with the 2011 New Year's Concert at the Musikverein in Vienna. Performing compositions by the Strauss family as well as Joseph Lanner, Joseph Hellmesberger and Franz Liszt, the orchestra and conductor presented this most Viennese of all music not only to the audience in attendance in the Golden Hall but also to millions of television viewers in over 70 countries worldwide.

Franz Welser-Möst, the General Music Director of the Vienna State Opera who in June 2010 also conducted the orchestra's annual Summer Night Concert Schönbrunn, made his New Year's Concert debut, conducting a program in which several works of the Strauss family and Liszt's Mephisto Waltz No. 1 received their first performance in this setting.

In view of the tradition of the New Year's Concerts, which began during the Second World War, the Vienna Philharmonic performs the concert even today not only as a presentation of Viennese musical culture at the highest level, but also to send the world a New Year's greeting in the spirit of hope, friendship and peace.
