The event will start on Saturday, January 1, 2022, at 12.15 pm, and will be broadcast in Romania by TVR. The concert will be seen in over 90 countries and is estimated to have over 90 million viewers.
“In a difficult situation due to the pandemic that demands a lot of us all, I would consider a visit as a bad signal,” Nehammer wrote on Facebook on Thursday, stating that he will watch the concert on TV.
Although less likely to attend the concert, star conductor Daniel Barenboim said he was happy the hall would not be empty. He wanted to remind people of the importance of music: “I hope to inspire some politicians around the world to think about the importance of the spiritual need for music of the people.” The 79-year-old conductor also conducted the Viennese Philharmonic Orchestra in 2009 and 2014.
Limited number of spectators
The number of spectators was limited at the last minute to 1000, so 700 ticket holders will not be able to attend the concert. Seats have been reserved for them at a similar event next year.
Only those vaccinated against coronavirus and with a booster dose will be able to take their place in the ward. As many guests in Germany and Switzerland have not yet received a third dose, reducing the number of spectators has been the best solution, said Daniel Froschauer, a member of the Philharmonic Board.
“We’re lucky to be able to do that with 1,000 people, because music has to be enjoyed live,” Barenboim said, stressing the need to do more for children’s music education.
