These types of concerts never have had much, if any, appeal to me. I mean it’s fine if you like the Strauss family’s music, but, personally, I’d rather spend a gloomy day with Shostakovich or Schnittke (not that I’m deriding either composer’s general aesthetic --- just making a point) than have to watch another Vienna New Year’s concert.
