Jiří Rožeň: conductor
Jennifer France: soprano
Celebrate a New Year of musical adventures with the SCO and vibrant young Prague-born conductor Jiří Rožeň.
Our Viennese New Year Concert offers a tempting selection of musical confections to enthral and delight – from the rich musical flavours of Rožeň’s homeland, in the form of Dvořák’s delicious dance-hall Prague Waltzes, to exquisite tidbits from Hungary and Germany. Brilliant British soprano Jennifer France brings her silvery vocal sparkle to showpieces by Lehár and Zeller, as well as Richard Strauss’s touching love song Amor.
Your captivating trip concludes with the opulence of the Strauss family’s Vienna – where else? – amid the timeless beauty of The Blue Danube.
