New Year’s Concert with a generous smattering of pieces by Johann Strauss II and Josef Strauss, as well as some key works by Mozart, Beethoven and Schubert. Among the most famous are the waltz The Beautiful Blue Danube, the popular piece by Johann Strauss II, which was premièred in 1867 and has had huge success ever since. For moviegoers, but not only them, a melody closely linked to the “space ballet” from Stanley Kubrick’s 2001 – A Space Odyssey. Another highlight will be the soprano Chen Reiss, already a fixture on today’s great world stages.
