Czech Philharmonic New Year’s Gala Concert

Czech Philharmonic ⬩ New Year’s Gala Concert

It is no secret that the music of Viennese composers, especially the Strauss family, has a special magic. Their rich melodic invention and light touch are perfectly suited not only to the ballroom or operetta stage, but also to New Year celebrations. You can truly look forward to Vienna native Manfred Honeck and Kyrgyz soprano Katharina Konradi.
