We have not only enjoyed a long and fruitful artistic partnership with him, but also a great friendship. We are grateful to Maestro Barenboim for conducting the first Vienna Philharmonic concert after the Corona Lockdown in June 2020 at the Musikverein. Next year, he will also celebrate his 80th birthday. As a sign of this deep artistic bond, we will ask him to take the podium of the New Year's Concert for the third time on January 1, 2022."
