What does Christmas mean to you? This question was posed by Dietrich Henschel to 12 composers from different countries and cultures with the request to create a work for voice and ensemble depicting in music whatever they associate with Christmas. They were free to choose whether religion or tradition played a role. An objective view, criticism and satire were all possible. As was to be expected, the responses were all very different. The ensemble unitedberlin, with its artistic advisor, Vladimir Jurowski, was immediately up for this totally new approach to a Christmas project: “We see ourselves as kinds of gallerists of the musical avant-garde – with the ambition of creating an advantageous situation for creators and recipients.” Andreas Bräutigam, founding member and violinist The 12 modern Christmas carols are followed by 12 traditional ones. Arranged by Simone Rubino and Dietrich Henschel for baritone, percussion, celesta and piano. The selection of percussion instruments is exuberant and crazy: marimba, vibraphone, thai gongs, japanese drum, crotales, bass drum, congas, rototoms, gongs, timbal, snare drum, ocean drum, cymbal, carillon, cow bells, bicycle bell, axe and saw, as well as stones and shells.

What is High-Resolution Audio?

High-resolution audio offers the highest-fidelity available, far surpassing the sound quality of traditional CDs. When you listen to music on a CD or tracks purchased via consumer services such as iTunes, you are hearing a low-resolution version of what was actually recorded and mastered in the studio. ProStudioMasters offers the original studio masters — exactly as the artist, producers and sound engineers mastered them — for download, directly to you.

What do I need for playback?

You may need additional software / hardware to take full advantage of the higher 24-bit high-res audio formats, but any music lover that has heard 16-bit vs 24-bit will tell you it's worth it!
