The New Year's Day Concerts from Vienna started in the opening days of World War II, and the broadcasts and recordings are heard worldwide. Beginning with their originator Clemens Krauss, these concerts have gone through different phases in their history. On Saturday at 11 am on WILL-FM we will look at some of the major conductors who have shaped them.
