New Year’s Day Concert 2017 with Gustavo Dudamel

The Vienna Philharmonic has invited Gustavo Dudamel to conduct the 2017 New Year’s Concert. This will mark Dudamel’s first New Year’s Concert with the Vienna Philharmonic and will make him the youngest conductor ever invited for this honor. Since his debut with the orchestra in Lucerne 2007, this ongoing artistic collaboration has been characterized by a notable mutual respect. Musical projects contributing to a deepening of this artistic partnership include several subscription concerts in Vienna, the Summer Night Concert Schönbrunn 2012 and tours in Europe and Asia. In addition to his numerous concert appearances, Dudamel has also recorded with the orchestra.

Dudamel was born in Barquisimeto, Venezuela, the son of a trombonist and a voice teacher. He studied music from an early age, becoming involved with El Sistema, the famous Venezuelan musical education program, and took up the violin at age ten. He soon began to study composition. He attended the Jacinto Lara Conservatory, where José Luis Jiménez was among his violin teachers. He then went on to work with José Francisco del Castillo at the Latin-American Violin Academy. Dudamel began to study conducting in 1995, first with Rodolfo Saglimbeni, then later with José Antonio Abreu. In 1999, he was appointed music director of the Orquesta Sinfónica Simón Bolívar, the national youth orchestra of Venezuela, and toured several countries. He attended Charles Dutoit’s master class in Buenos Aires in 2002, and worked as assistant for Simon Rattle in Berlin and Salzburg in 2003.Dudamel has won a number of conducting competitions, including the Gustav Mahler Conducting Prize in Germany in 2004.[2] His reputation began to spread, attracting the attention of conductors such as Simon Rattle and Claudio Abbado, who accepted invitations to conduct the Simón Bolívar
Dudamel made his debut at La Scala, Milan, with Don Giovanni in November 2006. On September 10, 2007, he conducted the Vienna Philharmonic Orchestra for the first time at the Lucerne Festival. On April 16, 2007 he conducted the Stuttgart Radio Symphony Orchestra in a concert in commemoration of the 80th birthday of Pope Benedict XVI, with Hilary Hahn as solo violinist, with the Pope and many other church dignitaries among the audience. In 2013 Dudamel conducted the Simon Bolivar Symphony Orchestra during the funeral of Venezuelan President Hugo Chávez. Dudamel continues to retain his position with the Simón Bolívar National Youth Orchestra.In April 2014 Dudamel returned to conduct with Gothenburg Symphony Orchestra, as its Honorary Conductor, for concerts in the orchestra’s home city and on tour in France, Switzerland, and Italy.

Dudamel made his US conducting debut with the Los Angeles Philharmonic (LAP) at the Hollywood Bowl on September 13, 2005 in a program consisting of “La Noche de los Mayas” by Silvestre Revueltas and the Tchaikovsky Symphony No. 5.[7] Dudamel was subsequently invited back to conduct the orchestra at Walt Disney Concert Hall in January 2007 in performances of “Dances of Galánta” by Zoltán Kodály, the third piano concerto of Sergei Rachmaninoff with Yefim Bronfman as soloist, and Béla Bartók’s Concerto for Orchestra (the latter of which was recorded live and subsequently released by Deutsche Grammophon).

In April 2007, during a guest conducting engagement with the Chicago Symphony Orchestra, Dudamel was named the LAP’s next music director as of the 2009–2010 season, succeeding Esa-Pekka Salonen. His initial contract in Los Angeles was for five years, beginning in September 2009.Dudamel began his tenure as Music Director of the Los Angeles Philharmonic on September 28, 2009 with a rehearsal of Beethoven’s 9th Symphony that included the Los Angeles Master Chorale and representatives of eight community-based choruses. His first official rehearsal with the orchestra followed on September 30. On October 3 he conducted Beethoven’s 9th Symphony at the Hollywood Bowl in “Bienvenido Gustavo,” a free concert, and conducted his official inaugural concert featuring the world premiere of John Adams’ City Noir and Mahler’s Symphony No. 1 with his new orchestra in Walt Disney Concert Hall on October 8.

In February 2011, the orchestra announced the extension of Dudamel’s contract through the end of the 2018-2019 season, including the orchestra’s 100th year anniversary. In March 2015, the orchestra announced a further extension of his Los Angeles Philharmonic contract through the 2021-2022 season.

The History of the Vienna Philharmonic´s New Year’s Concerts

The Vienna Philharmonic Orchestra’s New Year’s Concert is by far the most popular of this orchestra’s functions, but also Austria’s most noteworthy cultural export. Throughout the world the Vienna Philharmonic’s New Year’s Concert is televised worldwide and is without doubt the most widely seen and heard of all regular musical presentations performed in the equally famous Musikvervein Concert Hall. Reaching an audience of over 1.2 billion people since transmission commenced in the Republic of China in the 1990’s.

Inside Austria it constitutes an important part of the nation’s cultural identity. The worldwide popularity of the New Year’s Day Concert goes all the way back to the “King of the Waltz” himself Johann Strauss. The historical facts, however, tell quite a different story. Despite the fact that many future Philharmonic members began their careers in Strauss’ orchestra, the “Philharmonic Concert Association”, as it was called at the time, generally ignored the most charming and “Viennese” music which has ever been written. Probably the musicians did not wish to jeopardize the social advancement they had experienced upon becoming members of the Philharmonic by associating themselves with dance and entertainment music. It should be noted, however, that the Strauss dynasty enjoyed the highest respect among great composers of the day, such as Richard Wagner and Johannes Brahms. The Philharmonic musicians themselves, through several encounters with Johann Strauss, had opportunity to observe the importance of this music and the charismatic personality of its creator, which had enraptured all of Europe

It has long been a Philharmonic tradition at the New Year to present a program consisting of the lively and at the same time nostalgic music from the vast repertoire of the Johann Strauss family and its contemporaries.

Worldwide Ticketing is pleased to be able to offer tickets for this most prestigious event in the Musikvervein Concert Hall and being a part of a very unique experience.
