Notes and Editorial Reviews

A “magical” performance of Bach's Christmas Oratorio with the Chor des Bayerischen Rundfunks and the multiple award winning Akademie für Alte Musik Berlin under the direction of Peter Dijkstra.

The especially colorful light design in the Herkulessaal of the Munich Residence makes this concert from December 2010 a very special experience.
