The Vienna Philharmonic and Sony Classical have agreed to extend their long-term collaboration.

The focus of the partnership will remain the New Year’s Concert, held annually on 1 January in Vienna’s Musikverein. Future concerts will be released globally through Sony Classical on CV, DVD, vinyl and across all streaming platforms.

Last year’s edition of the concert reached No 1 in Germany’s classical charts, making it the year’s best-selling recording in the country’s classical music market.

In addition, the orchestra’s Summer Night concerts, held in the Schönbrunn Palace, will be available exclusively on Sony Classical over the coming years.
