Notes and Editorial Reviews

For many years a solo member at the Vienna State Opera and sought after at international opera stages, Austrian baritone Clemens Unterreiner continues to perform in concert halls and churches alike. So it comes as no surprise that the Austrian star baritone abandons the dramatic repertory for this new release and presents a selection of the most beautiful German Christmas carols. Together with the ORF Radio Symphonic Orchestra, some of the most timeless melodies and contemplative songs are featured on this album, preparing inimitably for the holy days of the celebration of God’s love. In a second part, Clemens Unterreiner recites festive poetry by writers such as Heinrich Heine, Joseph von Eichendorff, Johann Wolfgang von Goethe, Stefan Read more Zweig, Clemens von Brentano or Joachim Ringelnatz.
