Midwinter is fast approaching! With it come all of the feelings associated with two things: warm and fuzzy nostalgia for winter holidays, and the dark, cold longest nights of the year. Vlad will whet your appetite for both sides of the wintry coin as he explores music based on these two emotional themes of the cold season (assuming your listening in the northern hemisphere, of course!). Two composers of the week get their due as well, with birthday anniversaries for Ludwig van Beethoven and Michel de Lalande, featuring the French composer on a recent recording by up-and-coming ensemble Les Surprises.
Coming up on Vox Nostra on Sunday 24th December.
With a day to go before Christmas, Vlad asks the Vox Nostra composers of the week to step aside and make room for a bounty of Christmas music. With no shortage of stellar music from over a thousand years to choose from, Vlad picks the best out of the Christmas bag to fill the morning of Christmas eve on Vox Nostra. Framed by Palestrina's "Quem vidistis pastores" mass, Vlad sets the stage for the twelve days of Christmas with music specially composed for Christmas Eve.
