The New Year’s Concert live from Vienna is one of the world’s most famous and spectacular classical music events. It is broadcasted on TV and radio and reaches over 90 countries around the world with more than 50 million viewers. The Vienna Philharmonic regards this now traditional event as a way of wishing the world a Happy New Year through the medium of music in a spirit of hope, friendship, and peace.

Recordings of the New Year’s Concerts are among the most important titles on the classical music market, and Sony Classical is keen to make this release available to the widest possible international audience. The live recording of the 2023 New Year’s Concert is now available as a double-CD.

This year the prestigious concert is conducted by Austrian conductor Franz Welser-Möst. He has already appeared twice on the podium for the New Year's Concert (2011 and 2013) and one time on the podium of the Summer Night’s Concert (2010).
