The origin of the Vienna Philharmonic Orchestra dates back to 28 March 1842, when Otto Nicolai, composer of The Merry Wives of Windsor, conducted a "great concert" promoted by "all the orchestral musicians of the Royal Imperial Court Opera Theatre". The principles then laid down are still valid today, the orchestra being a self-governing, democratic institution. 金碧辉煌的建筑风格和华丽璀璨的音响效果使其无愧于金色的美称。

The concert is popular throughout Europe, and more recently around the world.

Indeed, many seats are reserved by some Austrian families and passed down from generation to generation. The event is broadcast by the Eurovision Network which includes most major networks around Europe (including BBC Two in the United Kingdom). It is also broadcast on PBS in the United States (beginning in 1985), TVE in Spain, NHK in Japan, SBS in Australia etc. Since 2006, the concert has been broadcast to viewers in several African countries (Botswana, Lesotho, Malawi, Mozambique, Namibia, Swaziland, Zambia and Zimbabwe) and those in Latin America (Ecuador and Bolivia).
The concert always ends with three encores after the main programme. The first encore is a fast polka. The second encore is Johann Strauss II’s Blue Danube Waltz , whose introduction is interrupted by applause of recognition from the audience. The musicians then collectively wish the audience a happy new year, play The Blue Danube and close With Johann Strauss. Sr.’s Radetzky March . During this last festive piece, the audience participates with the traditional clap-along, and the conductor turns to the audience in time to conduct them instead of the orchestra.
The concert was first performed in 1939, and conducted by Clemens Krauss.
It is the desire of the Philharmonic not only to provide musically definitive interpretations of the masterworks of this genre, but at the same time, as musical ambassadors of Austria, to send people all over the world a New Year's greeting in the spirit of hope, friendship and peace.
