* Since 2001 Zubin Mehta is one of only few honorary members of the Wiener Philharmoniker.
* Mehta has always had a passion for the music of Johann Strauss family as well as for the event itself: “For someone who grows up in
Read more Vienna, this concert is a very special one.”
* Once again, the program is a tasteful mixture of well-known classics and New Year´s Concert premieres, which include Joseph Strauss´s “Irenen”-Polka and the valse “Flattergeister” as well as Johann Strauss’s “Einzugs-Galopp.”
* The DVD release will include performances by the Wiener Staatsopern Ballet in a choreography of Christian Tichy, only visible on TV and DVD – as shown during the intermission of the live TV broadcast.

* Bonus material: Dynamiden and An der schönen, blauen Donau, filmed sequences from the ballet versions.
