It’s time for holiday music! Warm punch, cookies and a crackling fire aren’t complete without the sound of heartwarming carols – and the wonderfully atmospheric “O Holy Night” (also known as Cantique de Noël) by Adolphe Adam fulfills every wish. Accompanied by the famous harpist Xavier de Maistre, master tenor Rolando Villazón gives a sparkling rendering of one of the most beloved Christmas songs of all time.
“Musical moments” can be moments of memories or reflection, a retrospect of the past or an anticipation of the future, that are enriched by hearing or thinking of a special piece of music in that same moment. Further artists in the series include Daniel Barenboim, Yuja Wang, Nadine Sierra, Avi Avital and Albrecht Mayer just to name a few.
