Christmas Time

December 21, 2017

The snow is teasing Nuremberg. Comes and goes. Hovering in the air. Lets itself be smelled and disappears again.  But the Christkindlmarkt is as cozy as ever and the apple-glühwein my favourite for the year. After extensive testing and serious research the winner of 2017 Lebkuchen-competition is Fraunholz . I truly recommend them. Düll and Eckstein shared the second place.

The true christmas feeling however came through music, who would have thought. Through singing a wonderful christmas concert, with Bach’s Weihnachtsoratorium, in the St Lorenz church with fabulous Ensemble KONTRASTE – with Matthias Ank, conducting, and another more traditional christmas concert with all the traditional songs followed by Saint-Saëns Oratorio de Noël.

Today I’m leaving Franconia for Winter Wonderland, at home. But I’ll be back soon for die Soldaten at State Theatre Nuremberg.

Until then I wish you all Merry Christmas, Happy Holidays and Happy New Year
