Palau de la Música to host a number of concerts from 20 December to 17 January
One of the deepest rooted seasonal traditions is to begin the new year to the rhythms of a waltz, listening to the magical works of Johann Strauss in a participative environment. And now you can even do it in the magnificent setting of Barcelona’s Palau de la Música Catalana. From 20 December to 17 January, the Strauss Festival Orchestra will feature in a production that has enjoyed 26 years of success in Europe and has been seen by some 5 million spectators.
The concert has played at some iconic venues, including the Musikverein in Vienna, the Concertgebouw in Amsterdam, the Philharmonie of Berlin, the Musikhalle in Hamburg, the Auditorium Parco della Musica in Roma, Barcelona’s Gran Teatre del Liceu, and the Teatro Real and the Auditorio Nacional de Música in Madrid. The programme on offer at the Palau de la Música is directly inspired by the iconic New Year’s concert in Vienna.
This concert therefore includes fragments of some of the most popular refrains from the Vienna concert such as Napoleon, Flower Festival Polka, Emperor Waltz and Champagne. Concert-goers will also have the chance to clap along to the Radetzky March and the Blue Danube.
