Vienna Philharmonic Announces New Year’s Concert
The orchestra’s New Year’s Concert on January 1, 2024, will be conducted for the second time by Christian Thielemann
Having collaborated with the Vienna Philharmonic since 2000, Christian Thielemann conducted his first Vienna Philharmonic New Year’s Concert in 2019.
To be held in the Golden Hall of the Vienna Musikverein, the 2024 edition will be broadcast in over 90 countries and be viewed by millions.
The concert program includes works by Karl Komzák, Johann Strauss, Joseph Hellmesberger, Eduard Strauss, Carl Michael Ziehrer, Anton Bruckner, Hans Christian Lumbye, and Josef Strauss.
Regularly leading the philharmonic regularly in subscription concerts and international tours, Thieleman is also the principal conductor of the Staatskapelle Dresden and designated general music director of the Staatsoper Unter den Linden in Berlin.
Following the recording of the complete Beethoven symphonies, Thielemann and the Vienna Philharmonic also released the complete 11 symphonies of Anton Bruckner in Fall 2023.
“We have enjoyed a close artistic partnership with Christian Thielemann for many years, making him a Philharmonic conductor with whom we have a particularly strong relationship,” said Daniel Froschauer, Vienna Philharmonic’s chairman.
“With the New Year's Concert 2024, we also join together to usher in the Bruckner anniversary year,” he continued. “For this reason, this year’s program will include for the first time a composition of Bruckner, as well as many other delightful, yet still unknown treasures from the composers of the Strauss family and their musical contemporaries.”
