Every New Year, the highlight in the classical music world is the annual concert given by the Vienna Philharmonic Orchestra. In 2003, the honour of conducting this special concert was handed to Nikolaus Harnoncourt, who admits that he was touched to receive this special invitation.

Harnoncourt chose to focus the night‘s music on the Straußes - both Johann Sr. and Johann Jr., as well as Josef - and chose pieces that had not been heard at any of the previous New Year‘s concerts. Also included were Brahms‘ Hungarian Dances and Weber‘s Invitation to the Dance.

An der schönen blauen Donau, Radetzky-Marsch, Kaiser-Walzer, Lob der Frauen, Hungarian Dance Nos 5&6,
Invitation to the Dance.
