For many, Christmas without Bach's Christmas Oratorio that baroque masterpiece made up of six cantatas, telling the story of Christmas from the Nativity to the visit of the Three Wise Men would be quite unthinkable. Whether experienced live in concert or heard on a CD, the work is always a great treat.
What makes this December 2010 live recording of the concert performance at the Herkulessaal in the Munich Residenz so special? The clear voices of the young but excellent vocal soloists, the regularly acclaimed "crystal clear sound" and "astonishing three-dimensionality" of the Chor des Bayerischen Rundfunks, under the direction of Peter Dijkstra, and of course that renowned period instrument ensemble, the Akademie für Alte Musik Berlin.
There is also the exciting atmosphere of a live concert event that delighted the audience, plus the fact that the performance even managed to elicit the adjective "magical" from Munich reviewers rare praise, but in this case highly deserved!
