15 Nov 21 – 30 JANUARI 2022 – NEW YEAR’S CONCERTS (POSTPONED)
There is no better way to start a new year than with a concert full of cheerful party music with the necessary dose of humour. After the roguish overture to Il barbiere di Siviglia by the Italian crowd-pleaser Rossini, our Belgian favourite Sylvia Huang ventures to the notoriously difficult Carmen Fantasy, a nod to Bizet’s opera of the same name. Haydn’s fresh Symphony No. 88 also sounds like a New Year’s wish that has already come true. And yet the undisputed musical emperors of the New Year remain the members of the Strauss dynasty. Together, the Strauss family moved Viennese dance culture from the ballroom to the concert stage, where immortal fame awaited works such as the Radetsky-Marsch and the overture to Die Fledermaus. Irresistibly melodic and always youthful, these gems are already making us long for an unforgettable year.
