Could we be informed which work(s) Barenboim was conducting on this occasion?

It was the New Year concert - which consists mostly of familiar Strauss waltzes (I have been catching up on my taped programmes). It could be come to think of it that the knees affair during the Strauss was intended as a kind of quiet joke, because there was also a lot of sub-comic "business" with the last movement of Haydn's Farewell, and at one point the hall was even invaded by a lot of little fairies dancing about.
