Feel like taking a world tour? At least Mariss Jansons and the Bavarian RSO Orchestra will offer musical souvenirs from Europe, America and Asia in their first New Year’s Eve Concert, moderated by Thomas Gottschalk. Once again the evening will open with last year’s two great centenary celebrants: Bernstein’s sparkling Candide Overture followed by Debussy’s idyllic Clair de lune. A wild bear-dance by Elgar, a morbid waltz by Sibelius and a Slavonic Dance by Dvořák prepare the entrance of guest star Lang Lang, fresh from his comeback. He will play the dreamy Andante from Mozart’s C major Piano Concerto (K 467) and indulge the emotions with an excerpt from Yellow River Concerto, a popular piece from his native China. Also exuding a Far-Eastern fragrance between trance and ecstasy are miniatures from Korea and Japan, invoking memories the orchestra’s great Asian tour. Further programme highlights include Mascagni’s melodious Intermezzo and fiery Spanish zarzuelas. At the end Maestro Jansons will unleash a musical fireworks display with an Hungarian Dance by Brahms and Rumanian folk music by Ligeti. The gala concert will be broadcast on radio and video stream by BR Klassik and covered live by Germany’s ARD.

Please note: Although the concert starts at 5pm, you should take your seats at 4:45 pm due to the live recording. Thanks a lot!
