Overview

Daniel Barenboim conducted the Vienna Philharmonic in the 2014 News Year's Concert, an annual celebration that showcases classics by the venerable Strauss family and the light music of other composers. True to tradition, this concert offers selections by Johann Strauss I, his sons Johann Strauss II, Eduard Strauss, and Josef Strauss, as well as the unrelated Richard Strauss, Joseph Hellmesberger, Joseph Lanner, and for the first time on a New Year's concert, the French composer Léo Delibes. However, this is not a completely familiar program, because Barenboim has chosen pieces that are mostly unfamiliar to audiences outside Austria. Except for the universally known Strauss classics ("Tales from the Vienna Woods," "On the Beautiful Blue Danube," and the "Radetzky March"), as well as the Pizzicato from Delibes' ballet "Sylvia" and the Mondscheinmusik excerpted from Richard Strauss' opera "Capriccio," the selections are primarily standards among the Viennese, who regard them as their birthright, and they are seldom heard in the west. Barenboim and the Vienna Philharmonic play with high energy and spontaneity, and the fun atmosphere of the evening comes across in these glittering and buoyant performances.
