New Year's Day Concert From Vienna20210101In normal times, the traditional New Year’s Day concert given by the Vienna Philharmonic at the Vienna Musikverein is a moment to remember the past and look forward to the coming year with hope and optimism. In these unprecedented times where live music making has largely been silenced, the joy at hearing the Vienna Philharmonic under the baton of Riccardo Muti once again perform these familiar tunes, on this day, on that concert platform, will be a moment to celebrate and perhaps also mark a corner being turned. Though the music may evoke a time of glittering balls, flickering candles, and nostalgia for a mythical better time, perhaps this new year, just maybe, it will be the herald for a brighter future where once again people can hold each other close, dance around a room and celebrate music together as a social human activity.
