Johann Strauss Gala A Viennese New Year
Aleksandar Marković CONDUCTOR Fiona Murphy Soprano

Johann Strauss II is the king of the waltz and New Year's Day has become synonymous with the elegance of Viennese style and grandeur. Join the BSO and Günther Bauer-Schenk and escape to a world of glittering dance-halls in a concert filled with memorable polkas, marches, gallops and waltzes. With the power of a full symphony orchestra, this is Strauss as it should be heard - pulsating with shimmering strings and dashes of orchestral exuberance. 

Stunning Irish soprano, Fiona Murphy, who has sung with Alfie Boe and Bryn Terfel to name but a few, will add further magic and sparkle.

Highlights include his overture to Waldmeister, the Tik-Tak, Pleasure Train and At the Hunt polkas and the Emperor and Treasure waltzes. There are also treats by his brother Josef including the Phoenix march and Feuerfest polka. Plus, of course, The Blue Danube to finish.
