I have hung my handmade wooden star-lamps in the windows; it is time to embrace candles, Glühwein, friends and coziness – it’s advent!

Advent means a lot of music of course. If you want to consume other christmas related music than the playlists in the shops this is the time of year where one doesn’t have to go far for options!

An Oper+ trio is singing christmas songs at Christkindlmarkt. You can find us somewhere among the people between 17:00 and 19:00 Dec 4th, 5th, 7th, 8th,15th and 16th

Second and third of advent I’ll be singing Händel’s Messiah in two different versions. On Dec. 7th a somewhat shortened version of Händel’s original piece from 1741, but in german translation in Schwäbisch Gmünd and on Dec 14th Mozart’s “updated” version of Händel’s Messiah from 1789 in Nürnberg. More details are to be found in my calendar.

I can’t help but wonder if the french revolution influenced Mozart in some way??
