The New Music Christmas


Why is there so few contemporary music that deals with christmas? Join us to find out. In this episode of Radio Schallfeld, we take a look into the not always easy relation between music and religion and we hear music that reflects on the birth of Christ and on light at the end of darkness. One could also say that music, like no other art form, can give us happiness and hope – and what could be more celebratory than that?

The whole team of Radio Schallfeld wishes you merry Christmas, happy holidays and a wonderful new year!

Music by: Arnold Schönberg (Weihnachtsmusik), Olivier Messiaen (from: Vingt Regards sur l’enfant Jesus), Klaus Lang (bright darkness), Jörg Herchet (Komposition für Orgel) and Nicolaus A Huber (O dieses Lichts!)
