This paper is aimed at drawing attention to the problem of the media representation of artistic music, through the case study of the television broadcast of the New Year’s Concert in Vienna. The text contains a brief historic summary of the concert and its broadcast within the European television network, Eurovision. Using this year’s broadcast (2013) as an example, certain aspects are marked that potentially represent a starting point for further interpretations of the New Year’s Concert and, generally, the relationship between artistic music and media.
