BONUS: New York Philharmonic performs "Pizzicato Polka"

Clip: Season 43 Episode 5 | 2m 56s

Johann Strauss II is justly celebrated for his voluptuous orchestrations and rousing dance rhythms, but here he exhibits the more delicate side of his musical genius, crafting a piece entirely around the plucking of strings. This gem in miniature was performed as part of the New York Philharmonic's 2018 New Year's Eve celebration.
