NEW YEAR’S CONCERT 2021
The Vienna Philharmonic and Riccardo Muti
Only a few concerts attract the widespread international interest enjoyed by the New Year's Concert in Vienna. The Vienna Philharmonic will usher in the New Year with a concert conducted by Riccardo Muti at Vienna’s Musikverein. On New Year's Day of 2021 Riccardo Muti will conduct the prestigious New Year’s concert for the sixth time (1993, 1997, 2000, 2004 and 2018). The conductor’s close artistic relationship with the Vienna Philharmonic Orchestra celebrates 50 years, almost 550 concerts, and dates back to 1971. This makes it appropriate not only to reminisce about Italy but also to mark the forthcoming 80th birthday of the conductor and honorary member of the orchestra.
The live recording of the 2021 New Year’s Concert will be available digitally (January 8) and on CD (January 15), as well as on DVD, Blu-ray and vinyl (January 29) and as a visual album (February 12).
