One, two, three into the New Year! Once again this year the Tonkunstler Orchestra plays in the New Year for its public with waltzes, opera and operetta excerpts and orchestral music as effervescent as fine champagne. Optimism, joie de vivre and humour stand at the end of the old and the start of the new year, as the world carouses in waltz time. With arias, lieder and rousing melodies from the Strauss dynasty and many more composers besides, a good atmosphere is guaranteed: tongue-in-cheek music for a sideways glance at role models, love and politics. The Tonkunstler Orchestra has long been a New Year’s institution, delighting audiences with its wit, musicality and good cheer.
