A Very Brandenburg Christmas contains everything we’ve come to expect from five-time ARIA Award winning Australian Brandenburg Orchestra’s annual Christmas live albums – and much more.
There are well-loved carols with the Brandenburg Choir, baroque masterpieces brought to new life, choral and operatic favourites, and – for the first time – the magical sound of the bandura, played here by Ukranian Larissa Kovalchuk. The live performance was a highlight of the Brandenburg’s 25th anniversary year, and this album will be treasured for Christmases to come.
