Christmas Remembered

Reflecting a time when people would gather together to play the music of the day in friends’ parlors…”Christmas Remembered” brings together some of the finest classical musicians to perform lush renditions of holiday chamber music. Piano, violins, viola, cello, flute and classical guitar all combine to bring you musical arrangements that mix traditional carols with famous classical pieces in a unique way. This recording is our way of harking back to an era of simple beauty and grace. Judith Lynn Stillman has assembled these musicians, all of whom she enjoys working with, in the spirit of friendship and good tidings.
