Product Description

Product Description

The New Year’s Concert live from Vienna is one of the world’s most famous and spectacular classical music events. It is broadcast on TV and radio in almost 80 countries with more than 40 million viewers. The annual New Year's Day Concert in Vienna has been a major event for more than seven decades. The resulting recordings with works from the Strauss dynasty and their contemporaries are among the classical market's most important releases. In 2014 The Vienna Philharmonic invited Daniel Barenboim to conduct the New Year's Concert.

The programme traditionally revolves around waltzes and polkas by the Strauss family (Johann father and son, as well as Josef and Eduard Strauss), and includes works by other composers of that era. The proven formula blends well-known classics with premieres of works that have never been recorded or are rarely heard – and the result is invariably both joyful and moving.

The Vienna New Year’s Concert can trace back its origins to 31 December 1939. The concert initially took place on the last day of the year. By 1941, however, it was being held on 1 January, when the Vienna Philharmonic established a tradition that continues to flourish to this day. The list of names of leading conductors who have led the Vienna Philharmonic’s New Year’s Concerts includes great maestros such as Herbert von Karajan, Lorin Maazel, Claudio Abbado, Carlos Kleiber, Zubin Mehta, Riccardo Muti, Nikolaus Harnoncourt, Seiji Ozawa, Mariss Jansons, and Franz Welser-Möst.

It continues to be works by members of the Strauss family – Johann Strauss Father and Son as well as Eduard and Josef Strauss – that are central to this media event. Old favourites from their output are heard alongside others that have never been recorded or are only rarely heard; all of them programmed around two fixed points in the concert: the Blue Danube Waltz and the Radetzky March.

Daniel Barenboim was born in Buenos Aires to parents of Russian-Jewish descent. He began piano lessons at the age of five with his mother, continued musical studies with his father, and gave his first official concert in Buenos Aires when he was seven. In 1952, the family moved to Israel, and two years later his parents took Daniel to Salzburg to take part in Igor Markevitch’s conducting classes. In 1955 and 1956, he studied harmony and composition with Nadia Boulanger in Paris.

From the mid-1960s, Barenboim began to devote more time to conducting. From 1975 to 1989 he was chief conductor of the Orchestre de Paris, with whom he often performed contemporary works by composers such as Lutoslawski, Berio, Boulez, Henze, Dutilleux and Takemitsu. In 1973 he made his opera debut at the Edinburgh Festival and in 1981 his debut at the Bayreuth Festival, where over 18 consecutive summers he conducted Tristan und Isolde, The Ring, Parsifal and Die Meistersinger.

In 1991, he succeeded Solti as music director of the Chicago Symphony and in 2006 was named “honorary conductor for life”. In 1992, he became general music director of Berlin’s Deutsche Staatsoper and in 2000, the Berlin Staatskapelle appointed him “chief conductor for life”. He also appears regularly with the Berliner Philharmoniker and the Wiener Philharmoniker. In 2007 he began a close relationship with the Teatro alla Scala in Milan, where he conducts opera and concerts as well as playing chamber music. In 2011 he was appointed music director of the legendary Milan institution.

In 1999, together with the late Palestinian-born writer and Columbia University professor Edward Said, Barenboim founded the West-Eastern Divan workshop and orchestra. For his efforts towards reconciliation in the Middle East as well as his musical achievements, Barenboim has been the recipient of many prizes and honours. He previously conducted the New Year’s Concert in 2009.

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.
