 Just what you'd expect, thank you! February 6, 2018 By BRADFORD P. (RYE, NH) See All My Reviews "I love the New Years concerts. They are always such great reminders of being able to hear them live many years ago. It's a nostalgic trip down Strauss lane." Report Abuse
 2018 New year Concert February 6, 2018 By David F. (Manlius, NY) See All My Reviews "Much of a much-ness when comparing music recorded with the last five years of New Year concerts that have been made available." Report Abuse
 New Year's Joy February 3, 2018 By Reginald Jones (Hamilton, VA) See All My Reviews "There are few things that are as much fun as listening to the Vienna Philharmonic New Year's Day concert. As usual, there is twice as much much on these discs as you hear in the TV broadcast. While the VPO could play most of these pieces in their sleep, they don't. They are at the top of their gain. And the inclusion of rarities is most welcome." Report Abuse
