Bach Christmas Oratorio parts 1, 2 and 3
Sparkling brass, drum rolls and a jubilant choir: Bach’s Christmas Oratorio gets straight to the point. After that radiant start, the one marvel follows another: heavenly chorales and recitatives, an affectionate sinfonia, Maria’s lullaby, the dance-like duet ‘Herr, dein Mitleid’ – and the Christmas story unfolds in all its glory. Heart-warming music in the darkest days of the year.
Please note: Jos van Veldhoven replaces Nathalie Stutzmann
Nathalie Stutzmann is unfortunately not feeling well and it is with deep regret that she is unable to conduct Bach's Christmas Oratorio. She is beining replaced by conductor Jos van Veldhoven.
