Alt-Christmas Oratorio :-)

In the time of Alt-Right and Alt-Truth, there is a quite more positive “alt” actually and that is Ton Koopman’s “Alt-Weinachtsoratorium”. A collection of Christmas cantata’s by Johann Sebastian Bach, that was performed live, December 16, 2016 and was recorded by the Dutch radio (mp3’s still audible here -> http://www.radio4.nl/luister-concerten/concerten/6467/avrotros-vrijdagconcert-kerst-met-koopman )

Nice to be able to compare these live recordings with the studio recordings Koopman recorded with the Amsterdam Baroque Orchestra last decade.

Merry christmas and I hope you will enjoy these Christmas Cantata’s…!
