What Are You Doing New Year's Day?

Dec 30, 2013

WRTI wishes you a happy, healthy, and peaceful 2014! Join us on New Year's Day at 11 am for the 74th annual Vienna Philharmonic concert broadcast from the Golden Hall of the Musikverein in Vienna. Daniel Barenboim conducts works by the Strauss family including Eduard Strauss, Josef Strauss, Johann Strauss, sen., Johann Strauss, Jr., Josef Hellmesberger, Jr., Richard Strauss, Joseph Lanner, and Leo Delibes. Wednesday, January 1, 11 am on WRTI.

Originating during the darkest chapter in Austria's history, these concerts have continually grown in popularity in the decades since, which can be attributed to the verve and creative energy of the compositions of the Strauss Dynasty, as well as their authoritative interpretations. Today millions of people throughout the world draw joy and optimism for the New Year ahead through the light-hearted yet subtly profound character of this music.
