During Beethovens 250thanniversary year, his music featured in the New Years Concert for the first timeand having just recorded the nine symphonies, Andris Nelsons and the VPO were the perfect people to perform it. A handful of his contredanses are supplemented by Johann IIs Seid umschlungen, Millionen! waltz, which takes its title from the same Schiller text that inspired Beethovens Choral Symphony. Hans Christian Lumbyes Postillon Galop gives Nelsons the opportunity to pick up his trumpet. Otherwise its Hellmesberger, Supp, and the Strausses all the way, done with terrific verveand the Radetzky-Marsch even gets a makeover this year.
