About the Concert
Tickets for these and other events will go on sale on 21 JUNE, as will election tickets for the coming season.
Our New Year's Eve concerts are usually upbeat, as is the case this time when Thomas Guggeis and the Dresden Philharmonic bid farewell to the old year. They begin with a kind of Rush Hour, Gershwin's musical depiction of the Champs Élysées full of the roar of motors, honking horns and frenzied hustle and bustle. It continues with mambo, jazz and rock'n'roll from Bernstein's West Side Story. And we stay right in America: Rachmaninoff describes a whole day on Long Island in his Symphonic Dances and was so taken with them himself that he called them his best work.
