New Year's Day Concert, perfect for GCSE students...


Hope you've all had a good Christmas and some nice plans for tonight. Whilst you may not be thinking about school, tomorrow's New Year's Concert from Vienna will be the perfect start to 2011, especially for Year 11 students. As you may know, the traditional New Year's Concert includes performances of numerous Viennese waltzes by Strauss, Lanner and Hellmesberger, perfect for your Area of Study 3 work.

Live from the Musikverein, BBC Radio 3 broadcasts the 2011 Neujahrskonzert der Wiener Philharmoniker. The programme is presented by Petroc Trelawny and during the interval, Gavin Plumley (writer and broadcaster) will give a snapshot of what Strauss' Vienna was like.

Tune in to Radio 3 on New Year's Day at 10.15am for the live broadcast and listen at c.10.55am to Gavin's talk. Click here for more information about the concert and here for the relevant post on Gavin's blog, Entartete Musik.

Enjoy and see you soon!
