The Vienna Philharmonic’s annual New Year’s Concert in the Golden Hall of the renowned Musikverein may well be the most popular classical attraction in the history of the planet. Television audiences tune in by the millions for frothy gems from the city’s inexhaustible store of light classics. The inimitable Riccardo Muti, 80 years old, leads the revels for the sixth time. Under lingering pandemic protocol, the hall will be empty, so kick back and pop a cork at home. —M.G.
