Notes & Reviews:

The Vienna New Year’s Concert is the world’s most famous classical music event. Established by the Vienna Philharmonic as an annual tradition, the concert has become a brand name. This special limited edition, 3-CD plus DVD package is a long-awaited collection from the history of these New Year’s Concerts, featuring the great maestros – Herbert Von Karajan, Carlos Kleiber, Lorin Maazel and Zubin Mehta. It contains two CDs with ultimate highlights, the legendary first concert of Kleiber from 1989 on CD 3, and von Karajan’s 1987 single performance on DVD.

"This reissue heartwarmingly recaptures the special frisson that Kleiber's conducting seemed to engender in orchestral players and audience alike on New Year's Day 1989. Kleiber extracts from the orchestra playing that is variously exhilaratingly exciting (the conclusion of the Fledermaus Overture and the Ellen a Magyar! Polka, for instance) or hauntingly delicate (e.g. the opening of Künstlerleben). He never simply follows set notions of how these pieces should go, and yet his variations of tempo (4'41" into the Fledermaus Overture, 3'04" into Frühlingssammen, for instance) never seem other than natural." -Gramophone (On Kleiber's Concert)

"A splendid and indispensable issue for all admirers of Karajan and Johann Strauss. Watching the actual concert on TV was very touching, with the great conductor obviously moved by the occasion and, with a minimum of gesture, coaxing from the Viennese players performances combining warmth, subtlety and freshness... Karajan effortlessly has the audience under his command as well as the orchestra." -Gramophone (on the DVD)
