NEW: phil Blech Wien – “Christmas” CD

A Gold-Plated Philharmonic Christmas Season

How does Vienna’s advent, Vienna’s Christmas season sound? One could answer surprisingly with Johann Sebastian Bach: “Drums resound! Trumpets sound forth!” This is how that festively thunderous opening chorale of the “Queen’s” cantata begins, which the baroque master later borrowed for the start of his Christmas Oratorio, changing it to “Rejoice, exult! Rise, glorify the days.”

With that the significant words have fallen, because when the musicians from phil Blech Wien prepare themselves and their listeners musically for Christmas then it sounds a lot different than usual: like kettle-drums, like trumpets – and like a horn, a trombone and a tuba.
