Sony Classical is pleased to announce the release of the recording of one of the world’s most famous classical music events: the 2012 New Year’s Concert with the Vienna Philharmonic. Latvian conductor Mariss Jansons returns to direct the 2012 celebrations after his acclaimed debut in 2006. The live recording encompasses releases on CD, DVD and Blu-ray.
The annual New Year's Day Concert in the stunning Vienna Musikverein has been an exalted tradition for more than seven decades, and the resulting recordings with works from the Strauss dynasty and their contemporaries are among the classical market's most important releases. The programme traditionally revolves around waltzes and polkas by the Strauss family (Johann father and son as well as Josef and Eduard Strauss). In 2012 the programme is once again a skilful blend of well-known classics and six New Year’s Concert premieres. As always the concert is bound to end with two traditional encores--the famous waltz The Blue Danube and the Radetzky March.

The distinguishing factors in this year's issue are the exceptional recording quality, and the unusual programme.
Sony/BMG has again commissioned Teldex of Berlin, who were responsible for the excellent Vienna recordings with Maazel and Harnoncourt, to act for them- with once again superb results. The thunder has never rumbled so loudly and clearly in "Donner und Blitzen", the train effects in the Lumbye number are beautifully caught, and the orchestra is reproduced with the usual warmth and beauty but with more detail revealed than ever before.
The novelties include the Lumbye ("The Strauss of the North") number, the Sleeping Beauty excerpts, the riotous Carmen Quadrille and the exquisite "Tic Tac." Familiar numbers by Ziehrer and Hellmesberger are included, but the biggest novelty is the introduction of the Vienna Boys Choir, the first vocal inclusion since Battle for Karajan in 1987.
So, a well balanced selection of the familiar and unfamiliar, recorded to a standard which is the best yet-phenomenal sense of presence-and lovingly conducted by Jansons, making this a great recommendation for those looking for just one recording, and a splendid addition to the collections of those collecting more recordings.Read more ›
The concert programme starts by including quite a number of less familiar items which provide an additional level of interest, even though the audience takes a little time to warm up to this selection. Once the final well-known items are included the responses become noticeably more enthusiastic. This is not surprising - it is New Year's Day after all and quality entertainment is the prime order of the day. As a further Viennese attraction there are two items featuring the Vienna Boys Choir.
Mariss Jansons has had links with both Vienna and Leningrad as part of his initial studies and this link is explored in no less than 7 items including a welcome first appearance of some Tchaikovsky at these concerts. There are further moments of variety on offer too with Jansons demonstrating his performing abilities on not just the railway guard's whistle and by ringing a clock but also, more demandingly, on a pair of anvils. Naturally this extra expertise is fully appreciated by the enthusiastic audience who are by now fully warmed up!
In summary then, 2012 is a satisfying addition to this recorded series of concerts and strays enough off the beaten path to add musical interest to the familiar.Read more ›
