At this point, there have been several reviews of Carlos Kleiber' s New Year' s Concert in Vienna, and all seem to agree that it' s a wonderful performance. A concert hall is a cultural building with a stage that serves as a performance venue and an auditorium filled with seats.
While early halls built in the 18th and 19th century were designed for classical orchestra, concerto and opera concerts and ballet performances, halls built in the 20th and 21st century were often built to accommodate a wider range of performance types, including musicals. The Vienna Philharmonic ( VPO; German: Wiener Philharmoniker), founded in 1842, is an orchestra considered to be one of the finest in the world.
