Tonkünstler Orchestra Niederösterreich • Sumi Hwang • Alfred Eschwé

On the last day of December, it is again the duty of Alfred Eschwé and the Tonkünstler Orchestra to take their leave of the old year and welcome the new. Enjoy the quite special atmosphere this New Year’s Eve with a concert that sums up the whole year and makes the evening an exceptional musical occasion. It was the Roman god Janus, with one face looking forward, another looking back, who gave the month of January its name and so the magic of this passage from one year to the next is found not only in a wistful look back at all that is past but above all with hopeful looking forward to what is to come. Let our musical fireworks sweeten this joyful anticipation as you are born aloft into the new year on the wings of music!
