Balthasar-Neumann-Chor und -Ensemble / Hengelbrock «Monteverdi: Marian Vespers»
Thomas Hengelbrock and his Balthasar-Neumann Ensemble, which he founded in 1995, stand for «the perfect sound», particularly when it comes to early music. For their pre-Christmas performance in the Wiener Konzerthaus, the conductor and his magnificent ensemble are bringing with them Monteverdi's «Vespro della Beate Virgine». The work by Monteverdi, who was born 450 years ago in 2017, marks a turning point in the history of European music.

New Year's Concerts: Wiener Symphoniker / Jordan «Beethoven: Symphony Nr. 9»
The New Year's sky has had one particularly bright star ever
since 1975/76: since then, Beethoven's «Ode to Joy» has filled
the Wiener Konzerthaus's Great Hall every New Year’s Eve.
It is a worthy conclusion to the old year almost like no other.
Listen to the opulent work conducted by principal conductor
Philippe Jordan this year.
