Brilliant concert and wonderful playing by the only orchestra in the world that always plays Strauss and it needs to be played. Lovely music that makes you smile and gets you singing along. The Vienna boys choir are superb in the two pieces they sing and by the end of the album you feel so much happier. Next to Karajan this is the best New Year Concert you could hope to listen to. An essential disc to have in your collection!
A far more traditional New Years Concert than the 2011 disc.I was in two minds whether to buy this years disc after listening to last years which was so dull.But the 2012 disc has given me faith to carry on collecting this group of discs.This concert in Vienna is the highlight of New Years Eve,to get a ticket is like gold dust,therefore having the disc brings back memories,and that can never be a bad thing when something went so well!

I Felt the CD captured the atmosphere of the concert, sometime a Cd proves a dissapointment when you have watched the same on TV This did not dissapoint at all, I will in the future be looking to buy the DVd
