New Year's Day Concert 2011

Editorial Reviews

All Music Guide - Patsy Morita
2011 marked the 70th anniversary of the Vienna Philharmonic's New Year's Day concerts, and it was the first time that it was conducted by Franz Welser-Möst. Welser-Möst chose a few Strauss family works that are rarely heard -- including a couple that have never been performed at a New Year's concert -- and which had some significance, to celebrate either a connection with his family or an anniversary. The music of Liszt "Mephisto Waltz No. 1" makes its first appearance on a New Year's program, preceded by Johann Strauss Sr.'s "Furioso-Galopp," based on themes by Liszt.

Welser-Möst chose a few Strauss family works that are rarely heard -- including a couple that have never been performed at a New Year's concert -- and which had some significance, to celebrate either a connection with his family or an anniversary. The music of Liszt "Mephisto Waltz No. 1" makes its first appearance on a New Year's program, preceded by Johann Strauss Sr.'s "Furioso-Galopp," based on themes by Liszt. At that point in the program, the nature of the music seems to pick up a bit, becoming more appealing, endearing, and infectious than the first several selections. Although everything is played with the same level of polish that is expected from the illustrious orchestra, the audience applause confirms that the air has changed. "Aus der Ferne," by Josef Strauss, is touching, and the Spanish-flavored works are immediately engaging. With expected encores of "An der schönen, blauen Donau" and the "Radetzky-March," Welser-Möst leaves an overall favorable impression for his debut leading the Vienna Philharmonic in a well-loved tradition.
