Well, we were lucky enough to get tickets to be there for the New Years' Concert in Vienna. Does the cd do it justice- most definitely. A truly luxurious recording that captures the essence of the concert. If you haven't been able to get tickets, or simply want to luxuriate in a wonderful orchestra playing the most beautiful music-this is for you!

My wife and I watch/listen to this every year on New Year's day, and this year, we were particularly taken with some of the pieces chosen. This double cd is a delight and a very happy memory.

Can't understand one of your reviewers wheeling out that old chestnut "Frankly Worse Than Most" as Franz Welser Most was dubbed in his early years by the London Philharmonic. Yes, all very funny and good, clean fun ! But watching this concert as it happened on January 1st, 2011, I felt "Frankly Better Than Most." Indeed, the only New Year's Concert that I know which is better is the absolutely remarkable, once in a lifetime one under Herbert von Karajan, who rediscovered this music shortly before his death and gave one of the most extraordinary performances of his extraordinary career.

Even so, apart from the delightful inclusion of Kathleen Battle, Karajan offered fairly "standard fare" whereas Welser Most offers a very interesting programme, with many items that I had never heard before, despite having numerous boxes of Strauss music from Decca. I was also struck by the really excellent, sharp, clear and precise playing that he gets from the Vienna Philharmonic. It is often said that the Vienna Philharmonic do not really need a conductor in this music since it came to them along with their mother's milk ! And that is almost certainly true. But occasionally a conductor comes along who can add something, as Karajan obviously did (the opening of the Blue Danube could have been written for the "Karajan Style.") But, to my mind, so does the new director of the Vienna State Opera, Franz Welser Most. I also noticed an uncanny relationship between what the conductor was conducting and what the orchestra was playing !! Normally, the Vienna Philharmonic just ignore the conductor; they know the music better than he does or ever will and the conductor is usually only there because he is famous. But not on this occasion; they seemed to follow him very attentively.

As usual an excellent double CD recording, especially if you enjoy each year the the New Year concerts from Wiener.

We watch the New Year's concert from Vienna every year and this was one of the best. I've bought the CD as an early Xmas present for my other half though he hasn't had it yet, I'm sure he will be impressed. And the price is great too. We saw this very same CD in Vienna recently, on sale at E24.50. What a saving! How soon will the 2012 concert CD be released? Can't wait to get it.
