New Year's Concert 2012

Play on Napster
Released:
Label: Sony Classical
The annual New Year's concert in Vienna is an evening of Strauss dynasty waltzes, polkas and marches, and the concert is a tradition that has been in place since before the Second World War. With a bombastic opening in "Vaterländischer Marsch," Mariss Jansons leads a performance that captures the flair and festivity of the event. This is light and effervescent party music of two centuries past, and the ensemble takes on showpieces like the "Thunder and Lightning" polka and Johann Strauss' "Freuet euch des Lebens (Enjoy Life)" waltz with flourish.
