Live from the Golden Hall of the Musikverein, the Vienna Philharmonic Orchestra performs the climax of the annual celebratory concert of waltzes, polkas and marches conducted by Franz Welser-Möst for the second time.

As well as popular works by members of the Strauss family, we hear from anniversary composers Verdi and Wagner as well as Lanner and Hellmesberger. The Vienna State Ballet choreographed by Ashley Page dance to some of the pieces in and around the grounds of the picturesque Palace Hof. Presenter Petroc Trelawny sets the scene from Vienna.
