The New Year’s Concert, one of the world's most famous and spectacular classical music events, returns for the 81st time to present to viewers a sensational programme made up of the vast repertoire of the family of Johann Strauss and its contemporaries. Every year since 1939, the Vienna Philharmonic, one of the world’s finest orchestras, put on a show filled with lively, uplifting, yet nostalgic music which is broadcast in over 90 countries to a worldwide audience of 50 million viewers.

The prestigious concert is conducted by Riccardo Muti for the sixth time (1993, 1997, 2000, 2004 and 2018). He has conducted the Vienna Philharmonic since 1971 in over 500 concerts in Vienna, Salzburg and around the world. With his sixth concert, he is the most frequent conductor of this event since the legendary era of Lorin Maazel.

The Vienna Philharmonic, as musical ambassadors of Austria, send people all over the world a New Year's greeting in the spirit of hope, friendship and peace with the lively and light-hearted and at the same time nostalgic and profound music from the vast repertoire of the family of Johann Strauss and its contemporaries. This wildly anticipated event was broadcast on New Year’s Day on BBC 2 TV and BBC Radio 3.
