Like magic, the annual PBS broadcast of the Vienna Philharmonic New Year’s concert.
Finishing with “On the Beautiful Blue Danube”, certainly the most beautiful classical concert music piece in the world, followed by the audience enthusiastically joining in to handclap the orchestra through the most popular classical audience participation closer “The Radetsky March”.
Always included are many beautiful visuals of the hall, the main and nearby buildings, historical places, and scenes of the countryside, often accompanied by inspired ballet choreography. Enough to gladden and brighten any melancholy mood.
Equally memorable and entertaining is the summer concert show, the best that tv has to offer by way of classical concerts each year.
