The internationally renowned pianist Caroline Fischer has put together an evocative holiday gift with her new GENUIN CD. For the recording, she sought out old and new Christmas melodies, well-known and unknown, and combined them to form a harmonious whole. Included are treasures such as Otto von Walden’s tender fantasy on “Es ist ein Ros entsprungen” and Gustav Lange’s enchanting version of “Silent Night” – some of these windfalls have been recorded on CD for the first time. Thoughtfully curated and recorded to the highest standard, the only thing really missing is the wrapping paper!

Classical Music Sentinel
"This is a CD that would be right at home as the sonic backdrop to a reflective Christmas Eve [...] because it simply captures your attention without being intrusive. All the pieces, including the Christmas fantasies and variations, are performed with classical expressivity and earnestness." Review by Jean-Yves Duperron, November 2023

Klassik heute
"Caroline Fischer's equally lively enthusiasm for design and performance on the grand piano does justice to all this splendor at every moment, as her variable spectrum in terms of touch finesse and dynamic effect design seems inexhaustible and at the same time a sovereign sense of style keeps the great arc of tension in view." Review by Stefan Pieper, November 10, 2023
