Rheinberger’s music typifies German romanticism with lush orchestration, gorgeous melodies and deep emotion.

It’s a sweet, lovely cantata that tells of three shepherd children, Jeanette, Nicolas & Lubin, who travel with the Magi to honor the Christ Child. It is sung entirely by children and is très charmant. We hope you can join and that you make www.RadioBach.com your Classical Home for the Holidays!

Heinrich Schutz was the greatest German composer of the late Renaissance/Early Baroque. His music was an important influence on later composers like Bach and Brahms. There’s probably no better introduction to the music of Schutz than his CHRISTMAS ORATORIO. Tonight at 7:00, Radio Bach will broadcast his Christmas Oratorio in a splendid performance by Paul McCreesh and the Gabrieli Consort. McCreesh performs the work as it would have been heard at a Christmas Day Vespers service at the court of Dresden, surrounded by German Christmas carols and filled with lush instrumentation. We hope you can join us and that you make Radio Bach your Classical Home for the Holidays!!

Messiaen is one of the most unique composers of the 20th century. A devout Catholic, he was the organist for decades at St. Trinité in Paris. His organ music and his music in general is permeated with bird song (he was an ornithologist who notated the songs of all the birds in France), Gregorian chant, Hindu rhythms and the harmonies of Debussy. Messiaen had synesthesia, i.e, he saw colors when he heard sounds, and his music is incredibly colorful. Tonight at 8, Radio Bach will broadcast his Turangalîla Symphony, a psychedelic symphony that is probably unlike anything you’ve ever heard. www.RadioBach.com.
