2002 New Year's Concert

2002 New Year's Concert

by Vienna Philharmonic Orchestra

CD

Overview

With this U. S. release, the surprise European pop chart smash -- which beat out such competitors as Limp Bizkit and Sting -- is certain to go double platinum. Not a bad introduction to Vienna for Seiji Ozawa, the venerable maestro chosen to lead the 43rd Vienna New Year’s Day Concert in 2002. It was his debut appearance at the Vienna Philharmonic’s annual event, and by all accounts it was a huge success, one whose meteoric rise as a CD is simply unprecedented. Ozawa is leaving his post of 28 years as conductor of the Boston Symphony Orchestra to become music director of the Vienna State Opera in the Fall of 2002. Is this an augur of great things to come? Let’s hope so.
