The Vienna Philharmonic’s New Year’s Concert is unique and has often been imitated, but not equaled, with a live broadcast on television in over 90 countries around the world with over 40 million viewers. PBS aired the 2017 concert on over 181 stations and aired the 2018 concert nationally.

All of them programmed around two fixed points in the concert, The Blue Danube Waltz and the Radetzky March.
