I can't think of a finer way to ring in a new year than with some fine music -- which is pretty much guaranteed by the Berlin Philharmonic, conductor Gustavo Dudamel and Latvian mezzo Elina Garanca in a few minutes (8 p.m. Berlin time), in the annual St. Silvester's Day (a.k.a. New Year's Day) concert from the Philharmonie.
The concert is being made available for free streaming live today, or on demand starting tomorrow afternoon, at medici.tv.
You can check out all the details here.
Happy New Year.
