The World's Most Successful Classical Concert: Every year a different conductor is given the opportunity to wave his baton in Vienna's New Year's Concert and to conjure up a champagne mood with the Vienna Philharmonic. Two of the most famous ones have been Riccardo Muti and Nikolaus Harnoncourt, both of whom left unique marks on the history of the concert. This release gathers together their appearances in 1997, 2000, and 2001 - with a Viennese lilt and a sparkling live atmosphere.
