Aiming to explore utopian places in the city of Vienna, the artists found themselves in the 'Wiener Gemeindebau' - blocks of council flats, which were erected mostly after WWII by the viennese municipality in order to provide low-cost public housing. The rectilinear architecture finds its opposition in colorful mosaics and paintings on their walls, depicting a more vibrant future. Using Super8 & 16mm projections, the artists create a performative mosaic of this utopian reality. Performed by Stefanie Zingl, Stefanie Weberhofer and Stefan Voglsinger

The Vienna Philharmonic is very pleased that the New Year’s Concert 2015 will be conducted for the fifth time – after 1990, 1995, 1998 und 2007 – by Zubin Mehta. We have enjoyed a particularly close artistic collaboration with Zubin Mehta, the longest-serving Honorary Member of our orchestra, since 1961 – a span of more than 50 years. With the invitation to conduct this concert, the orchestra recognizes Zubin Mehta not only as one of the leading conductors of our time, but also as a great humanitarian. The program of this year’s annual Vienna Philharmonic tribute to the Strauss family features not only several compositions by Johann Strauss father and son, as well as Eduard and Josef Strauss, but also includes music by Franz von Suppé and Hans Christian Lumbye. Five pieces will be performed for the first time as part of the New Year’s Concert.

Ein echter Wiener geht nicht unter starred popular Austrian actor Karl Merkatz as the main character, Edmund "Mundl" Sackbauer.
