'Bohemian Christmas' means festive Baroque music from the heart of Europe, from where composers spread throughout the continent to all the important centres of music, so that the region was known even then as 'the conservatoire of Europe'. The present recording presents spirited music that strikes a new chord, played by Ludwig Güttler and his fellow musicians, who bring out the nuanced shades of this lovely seasonal music.

Bohemian musical history does not begin with Smetana and Dvorák, as we tend to think today”, says Ludwig Güttler. His selection of works for this release, part of which was recorded during a concert at the Dresden Frauenkirche in December 2012, tells us so with amazingly beautiful music and introduces us to new repertoire in the altogether familiar tonal language of the Baroque.
