The first New Year's Day Concert in Vienna featuring the Strauss Family was in fact on December 31st 1939 at the instigation of and under the direction of Clemens Krauss, when the war seemed far away and possibly even over-how little they knew! It was not broadcast live on radio, but Austrian Radio made recordings of the programme on Telefunken Magnetic Tape equipment-very advanced for the age-and this was broadcast and can be heard superbly re-mastered as part of the Wiener Philharmoniker Live series only available direct from their online shop.
It is in this series that the only other recording of Daniel Barenboim conducting the VPO other than in his previous New Year's Concert can be found, despite his long association with them and his prodigious discography (Mozart and Ravel-it's superb!).

The many recordings of the New Year's Day Concerts demonstrate 2 facts: that the "rarities" that the VPO management committee under its long standing President Clemens Hellberg insists are included are usually rarities for good reason, and that the music of the Strauss Family is not easy to conduct well!
Until the incomparable 1987 Concert with Karajan (who was accorded the unique privilege of choosing all the items for the concert), a unique document and one of THE great concerts, the concerts had only been conducted by Krauss, Boskovsky and Maazel each with their respective styles.
It was Maazel who really imposed the " great and significant music" imprimatur on the concerts, moving the music away from the lighter weight approach of Boskovsky who favoured light textures and dance rhythms.

I buy the CD of the New Year's Day Concert every year, as I am addicted to This genre of music. I was therefore very pleased to find a seller who saved me a few pounds of my restricted income. Thank you very much.

As usual, another great recording. This year there were some more unusual pieces included which would appeal to the enthusiast.
