Notes and Editorial Reviews

On the new release Winter Sounds, the Academy Chamber Choir of Uppsala, conducted by Stefan Parkman, performs music that in various ways is inspired by the winter period. The repertoire reflects all the different aspects of the winter, such as Christmas, New Year, the snow and our emotions for the dark period and the Nordic winter light. The recording contains a mix of sacred music in traditional hymns, newly written arrangements of well-known melodies as well as profane songs about winter. Here are compositions by Max Reger, Claude Debussy, Eric Whitacre and Francis Poulenc together with music by Duke Ellington and Benny Andersson.
