MDR Kultur selects Bübchens Weihnachtstraum as album of the week

9.12.2019: Right from the opening notes in the overture of Bübchen's Weihnachtstraum (The Christmas Dream), images of snow-covered woods and shining lights appear. No wonder, it is a work by Engelbert Humperdinck, who perhaps gave us the most beautiful Christmas opera ever with Hansel and Gretel. The MDR Children's Choir is now helping the unjustly neglected "Melodramatische Krippenspiel” (Melodramatic Nativity Play) to achieve its rightful place. And who would be a better advocate for fantastically orchestrated and imaginatively composed works than the children's choir of the MDR, one of the best ensembles of this is in Germany? The CD, released in December by Genuin, will be presented this week by MDR Kultur as album of the week - we are very happy!
