The New Year’s Eve concert opens with Sir Simon Rattle conducting music by Rameau: a suite of instrumental pieces from the opéra-ballet Les Indesgalantes show French Baroque music at its finest. For his appearance at this year’s New Year’s Eve Concert in the Philharmonie, Berlin, Menahem Pressler selected Mozart: the Piano Concerto in A major, K. 488. Following the intermission, the musicians ring in the New Year in a lively way with Slavic strains: an orchestral suite from Zoltán Kodály’s charming folk opera Háry János as well as a selection from the popular Slavonic Dances by Antonín Dvořák.
