Die Singphoniker; Thomas, Ludwig

Why Another Christmas album? Because the Christmas season ideally offers free time and opportunities for leisure, meditation, and self-reflection – all of which need not necessarily occur exclusively in the sphere of religious spirituality. We can also put our holidays to good use simply by doing nothing, not planning too much, and taking advantage of the opportunity for everything beyond the limits of our “to do” agendas. Time! For encounters, conversations, and ideas. Free space and time enable us to suspend our everyday routines and perhaps to entertain the eyes with pictures that we haven’t seen in a long time or haven’t ever seen before – and the ears with ditto sounds. This release is intended especially for this “chronotopos!” Here the Singphoniker in no way wish to encroach on your time-space, providing it with an audio background or supplying the musical accompaniment. But if you want to close your eyes and open your ears, then the Singphoniker will be happy to join you. They would like to offer entertainment and to transmit joy in the form of many wonderful melodies and moods: the joy that comes with so many astonishing developments and combinations, with so many different elements and contrasts, with Christmas swing, with the classical tradition, with folk-song tones, and that ranges from the Singphonic special arrangement to the timeless classics of the modern era.
