Our new CD is out today: Folks Songs around the World

Today is the day. Our new CD “Folk Songs around the World” with the Philharmonic Children’s Choir Dresden (conductor: Gunter Berger) is released by Sony Classical.

It is a journey around the world – and even a little beyond, what the Philharmonic Children’s Choir Dresden and we undertake here together, namely through the world of song, like folk song, in specially arranged, fascinating arrangements.

The path also leads across epochal boundaries, beginning with Orlando di Lasso’s “O là, o che bon eccho” in the Italian Renaissance and a French court dance, the “Pavane”. But of course there are also a number of popular German folk songs, such as “Vogelhochzeit,” “Jetzt fahr’n wir über’n See,” and “Ein Jäger längs dem Weiher ging.” In addition, arrangements of beautiful songs from Scandinavia, Poland, Hungary, Japan or America can be heard in first recordings, including two amarcord gems that can only be found on this CD. Of course, in such a collection of traditional songs, the world-famous Israeli “Hava Nagila” should not be missing. An excellent musical voyage of discovery around the world.
