Live from Vienna 2019

Petroc Trelawny hosts the traditional start to the year with music from the Golden Hall of the Musikverein in Vienna. This year's concert is led by Christian Thielemann.

Petroc Trelawny is our host for this year's traditional start to the year with music from the Golden Hall of the Musikverein in Vienna. This year's concert is led for the first time by the German conductor Christian Thielemann, guiding the Vienna Philharmonic in an array of polkas, waltzes and gallops by the Strauss family and their contemporaries.

As always, the concert ends with the ever-popular By the Beautiful Blue Danube and the foot-stamping Radetzky March. The concert is transmitted to some 50 million viewers in over 90 countries.
