REVIEWS

"DG rushed to issue this widely-publicized 2003 New Years Day concert; it was available just a few weeks after the event. It is admirable in every way...The DVD version has fine surround sound, magnificent photography, and almost a half-hour of special photographic features for some of the music played at the concert including impressions of the Danube river, a fascinating montage of the "trick fountains" at Hellbrunn Palace, and performances by the Vienna State Opera and Kirov ballets. Well done, and a fine memento of the 2003 New Year's Concert." -- ClassicalCDReview

"All of your favorites are here: The Blue Danube, The Emperor Waltz, Delirien, and of course the Radetzky March, played with typically Viennese verve and charm...As always, there are rarities to savor, such as Strauss I's Chinese Galop, Strauss II's Niko-Polka and Coronation Songs, and Josef Strauss' Pêle-mêle; and the recording, aside from the audience-participation factor that's part and parcel of the occasion, sounds just fine. In short, this is a very classy souvenir that does exactly what it should: ring in the New Year with a smile." --David Hurwitz, ClassicsToday.com
