Visitors heading to the Euskalduna Conference Centre and Concert Hall for the concert on January 1st 2011 can also expect to hear Radetzky, which is apparently normally greeted with plenty of clapping as it is played.

"The Strauss Festival Orchestra boasts a wonderful track record full of major successes achieved at many outstanding European auditoriums," noted the organisers.

They explained that the group has entertained audiences in locations as prestigious and diverse as the Tonhalle in Zurich, the Palau de Musica in Barcelona and Hamburg's Musikhalle.

Admission to this charming and festive occasion costs between 36 (£30.50) and 47, with the performance starting at 20:00 local time in the Auditorium.

Johann Strauss was an Austrian composer from the 19th century who was widely known as the Waltz King for the number of pieces he wrote in this style and the way he made the genre popular in Vienna.
