The tradition of celebrating the New Year to the music of the Strauss family was founded in the MGASO back in 2007. This year, the New Year’s concert of the MGASO is celebrating its 15th anniversary. The festive program includes masterpieces by Johann Strauss-son and Josef Strauss: waltzes “Imperial”, “Acceleration”, “On the Beautiful Blue Danube”, “Sounding Spheres”, overture to the operetta “Die Fledermaus”, polkas “Fire Festival”, “Trick -truck”, “Thunder and Lightning”, “Pizzicato”, “Anna”, “On the Hunt”, the rarely performed march “Givio!” (“Your health!”) based on the operetta “The Feast of Apples”.

For a decade and a half MGASO performed almost all the heritage of the Strauss family. For the MGASO itself, the New Year’s concert on December 30 is a good and bright tradition, summing up, farewell to the Old Year and a successful entry into the New Year 2023.

For listeners, a New Year’s concert always takes place in anticipation of the culmination – the Radetzky March by Johann Strauss the Father, under which the Great Hall of the Conservatory is filled with a thunder of applause.
