Notes & Reviews:

After the success of his introduction to the St. Matthew Passion, author Wieland Schmid takes us on a journey through the Christmas Oratorio with thrilling insights into Bach's creative process and background information on the composition. Outstanding narrators and the complete recording of the 2010 performance of the Christmas Oratorio with the Chor des Bayerischen Rundfunks and the Akademie für alte Musik Berlin under the direction of Peter Dijkstra make this 4-CD set the ideal Christmas gift.

Le Devoir
Peter Dijkstra, one of the best choral conductors in the world, was awarded in 2005 one of the best choirs in the world. Here he plays Bach's Christmas Oratorio with a mixture of clarity and elegance. As Rilling before him, Dijkstra shows excellent taste for soloists. drawing on the best elements of the next generation of German singers: Rachel Harnisch, Anke Vondung, Maximilian Schmitt and Christian Immler. This kit like no other is characterized by a gain incomparable, for the exclusive use, alas, a German public: two CDs produced by the Bavarian Radio in which the Christmas Oratorio is analyzed for two hours into its smallest corners. Non-German speakers, turn to Gardiner, Corboz, Herreweghe or Chailly.
