The Vienna Philharmonic’s New Year’s Day Concert

44.11

This year, Zubin Mehta is the maestro to conduct Strauss waltzes and more in the annual New Year’s concert in Vienna. Recorded earlier in the day at the Musikverein, this concert is so popular, tickets are sold by lottery. Each year, a major conductor is invited to take the podium; last year it was Daniel Barenboim. Thursday’s concert will mark Zubin Mehta’s fifth time taking center stage for this holiday tradition.
