Notes & Reviews:

The ever popular New Year's Concert from Vienna returns in another sparkling performance, broadcast live to over 50 countries! Daniel Barenboim makes his New Year's Concert debut and brings with him a number of works that have never been performed at the concert before. The live concert features popular waltzes, gallops and polkas from the Strauss family including 'The Blue Danube', 'The Gypsy Baron March', 'Thunder and Lightening Polka' and much more. A DVD is also available (DGG B001257009) and it includes the complete performance on CD as well as special ballet bonus performances.

BBC Music Magazine
This year, Daniel Barenboim took his first Vienna New Year assignment in 20 years, conducting the city's venerably Philharmonic. It throws up interesting music-making, the conductor's strong romantic streak making him more than usually liable to weave poetic magic from the many lingeringly expressive episodes in the Strauss family's music. Witness, for example, the heady surges of glorious string tone punctuating 'Rosen aus dem Süden'.

Notes & Reviews:

Daniel Barenboim led his first New Year's Concert with the Vienna Philharmonic in 2009, thus becoming the 14th maestro in this series' 69th year. This illustrious orchestra maintains a tradition of playing the most popular waltzes and polkas by Johann Strauss I and Johann Strauss II, but there are two other composers honored on this program, Joseph Hellmesberger II, with his Valse espagnole, and Franz Joseph Haydn, with the Finale of the Farewell Symphony; the latter selection was picked to honor the 200th anniversary of Haydn's death. When it comes to Viennese light music, no ensemble plays it better, and the Vienna Philharmonic gives its all, no matter how frequently it has performed this extremely familiar repertoire. The audience contributes its own energy to the proceedings, and the recordings derive much of their fun from its participation, particularly in the rousing Radetzky March. There is really only one issue with this double-disc from Decca, pertaining to the bass-heavy audio quality that lends the music a thickness that runs counter to the bubbly spirit of the concert. But beyond that technical matter, which is due to the microphone positions, this is a relaxing and jovial celebration, and certainly a fine set of Strauss staples for beginners to explore. ~ Blair Sanderson
