5.0 out of 5 stars A first class recording in all repects, 11 Feb. 2013
Verified Purchase(What is this?)
This New Year's Day Concert is refreshingly different in that it
contains eleven works previously not performed at these concerts.
These include a work by Wagner (Prelude to act III of Lohengrin)
and a work by Verdi (ballet music from Don Carlos), appropriate
as it is the bicentenary year of both composers. The remaining
newcomers are mainly works by Josef Strauss. Some may regret
the absence of some of the more familiar big works but of course
the Blue Danube, Radetsky March are included together with
the exquisite "Where Lemon Trees Blossom" and "Music of the
Spheres".

The Austrian, Franz Welser -Most conducts and shows he is a
fine interpreter of this Viennese music whilst the playing of the Vienna
Philharmonic is, as expected, perfection. The CD sound quality (Sony)
seems to be more vibrant and clear than most recordings of New year's
Day Concerts.

All togerther, a recording to treasure.
