There are few concerts in the world that are awaited with as much excitement as the New Year’s Concert from Vienna. Under the direction of Daniel Barenboim, the Vienna Philharmonic ushers in the New Year with a concert in the magnificent Golden Hall of the Vienna Musikverein. The concert is broadcast to over 90 countries all round the world, reaching an audience of more than 50 million.
The 2022 New Year’s Concert was conducted for the third time by Argentine-Israeli conductor Daniel Barenboim. His previous visits were in 2009 and 2014. He began working with the orchestra in 1965, when he made his Vienna Philharmonic début as a pianist. Born in Buenos Aires, he appeared with the orchestra for the first time as a conductor in 1989 and since has returned on countless occasions in this capacity including a Summer Night Concert (2009), philharmonic subscription concerts, guest performances and tours.
