Notes & Reviews:

Broadcast on TV and radio to over 40 countries around the world, the annual New Year's Concert in Vienna has been an exalted tradition for more than six decades. For the fifth year in a row, Deutsche Grammophon is releasing this concert of all concerts on CD (a 2 disc set) and on DVD. The Vienna Philharmonic has invited Zubin Mehta to lead his fourth New Year's Concert, following his superb conducting in 1990, 1995 and 1998. Mehta who has held chief positions in Italy, Israel, Vienna, Montreal, Los Angeles and New York, has also toured Japan regularly and became a household name at the Salzburg Festival. In 1998 he began a five year appointment as Director of the Bavarian State Opera in Munich. Once again, the program is a mixture of well-known classics and New Year's Concert premieres, which include Joseph Strauss's "Irenen" polka, the "Flattergeister" waltz and Johann Strauss's Einzugs-Galopp.

BBC Music Magazine
To the exquisite tone-poetry of the famous 'Blue Danube' waltz, Mehta brings a knowing discretion of touch, freeing the amazing Vienna Philharmonic to weave its customary magic. Overall, then, this is a superb New Year's Concert and without doubt one of the most warmly endearing in recent memory.
