Traditional event – New Year’s concert: prominent guests and a lot of police


After thousands of police officers in the federal capital had to oversee the New Year’s Eve celebration, the executive must move to the next big event the next morning. Traditionally, not only music lovers, but also the heads of state gather for the New Year’s concert of the Vienna Philharmonic in the Musikverein.

Wolfgang Sobotka, Chairman of the National Council, has already been observed – a proven music lover, keyword golden wings in parliament. Together with his wife Marlies he arrived at the Musikverein.

Other top politicians, including Federal President Alexander Van der Bellen, will also be among the guests. The New Year’s Concert attracts visitors from all over the world every year.

Welser-Möst conducts the Philharmonie
For the third time in his career, conductor Franz Welser-Möst leads the Vienna Philharmonic through the traditional New Year’s concert from the classical temple of the federal capital. And in 2023, the great musical event can be seen again in nearly 100 countries around the world – thanks to the 15-camera ORF broadcast.

Franz Welser-Möst, who performed the musical New Year’s Morning in 2011 and 2013, has put together a whole bouquet of new gems that have never been heard at a New Year’s concert. In total, 14 of the 15 programmed works have not yet been consecrated to be called New Year’s concert pieces. What is also new this year after two years of Corona is that the Philharmoniker can now play for a sold-out house again. Cheers New Year!
