On New Year's Day itself, Vienna's music lovers - and not just them - should turn on their TVs before the New Year's Concert is broadcast. Before the concert from the Musikverein a new film about the building will be shown. Felix Breisach, one of the grandmasters of music film, shot it: a fascinating homage to the Musikverein on its 150th anniversary. Easy to remember is also the date of another highlight in the anniversary year. On February 29, 2020, there will be a big birthday party for everyone: an open house presentation with music and talk, lectures and hands-on activities in (almost) all rooms of the Musikverein. "We want to show," says Thomas Angyan, "how this house has developed and what it stands for today: excellence, diversity and great, inviting openness."
