VIENNA PHILHARMONIC NEW YEAR’S CONCERT 2011 WITH FRANZ WELSER-MÖST

The Vienna Philharmonic New Year’s Concert 2010 takes place annually in the Musikverein in
Vienna and due to the international television and radio broadcast is a truly global musical event.
The concert is broadcast on television in 70 countries either live or time-delayed and is included in
the programs of over 300 radio stations worldwide.

Franz Welser-Möst
The Vienna Philharmonic New Year’s Concert 2011 will be conducted for the first time by the
Austrian conductor Franz Welser-Möst. Franz Welser-Möst, following in the footsteps of Clemens
Krauss, Josef Krips, Willi Boskovsky, Herbert von Karajan and Nikolaus Harnoncourt, becomes the
sixth Austrian conductor to stand at the helm of the Vienna Philharmonic on the first day of the
New Year. In recent years, Franz Welser-Möst has developed an increasingly close relationship
with the Vienna Philharmonic Orchestra. In 2009 he conducted the Vienna Philharmonic at the
Salzburg and Lucerne Festivals, at the BBC Proms in London, and in a special concert in Vienna to
mark the 150th anniversayry of the Vienna Singverein. Welser-Möst has taken up the position of
Generalmusikdirektor of the Vienna Staatsoper in September 2010. In June 2010, Franz Welser-
Möst also conducted the second major annual concert event of the Vienna Philharmonic, the
Summer Night Concert Schönbrunn.

Message of Hope, Friendship and Peace
In view of the tradition of the New Year’s Concerts, which began during the Second World War,
the Vienna Philharmonic performs the concert even today not only as a presentation of Viennese
musical culture at the highest level, but also to send the world a New Year’s greeting in the spirit
of hope, friendship and peace. By performing compositions from the vast repertoire of the Johann
Strauss family and their contemporaries, the Philharmonic wishes to present a lively and at the
same time thought-provoking program at the beginning of the New Year.

The Program
In addition to compositions from the rich repertoire of the Strauss Family and its contemporaries,
this year’s program includes the Mephisto Waltz No. 1, by Franz Liszt. This composer is being
honored on the occasion of his 200th birthday which occurs in 2011.
