And so it begins
New Year's 2011: Resolutions, radio, and the Radetzky March.
New Year's vignettes from around the classical music world.
1. The Metropolitan Opera brought Willy Decker's "La Traviata" from Salzburg to usher in the New Year on December 31st. (Here, the dress rehearsal.)
2. Franz Welser-Möst conducted the Viennese audience in the broadcast of today's iteration of the Vienna Philharmonic's traditional New Year's concert. (Squint and you can see a female violinist sitting next to the concertmaster, in the new outfit the orchestra introduced for its -- very few -- woman players.)
Happy New Year.
