Next Episode of New Year's Day Concert is
A classical music concert from a venue around the world to bring in the new year.
Petroc Trelawny guides us through this year's concert which comes live from Vienna. Mariss Jansons conducts the Vienna Philharmonic Orchestra for the event.
Highlights from the live concert shown earlier in the day on BBC Two.
Petroc Trelawny is our host for the traditional classic start to the year where the Vienna Philharmonic Orchestra are joined in the Golden Hall of the Musikverein by the exuberant and exhilarating Venezuelan conductor, Gustavo Dudamel. Dudamel is the youngest ever conductor to lead the orchestra in their annual celebration of the music of the Strauss family and their contemporaries and he brings his individual and exciting style to the proceedings. As well as a mix of the finest galops, polkas and waltzes, the concert ends, as always, with the beloved By the Beautiful Blue Danube and the stirring Radetzky March. There is also the customary appearance by the Vienna State Ballet - this year performing both on location and live inside the Musikverein - and also a performance by the Choir of the Society of the Friends of Music, consistently ranked among the best concert choirs in the world.
