A traditional program of advent and Christmas songs is still an important
part of the Christmas season. How much more so when a modern ensemble like the Bavarian Radio Choir is singing, a group that is just at home with modern music as with music of bygone centuries. The choir is conducted both by Michael Gläser, the ensemble’s conductor for the past 15 years, as well as Peter Dijkstra, the 26-year-old shooting
star who will take over as the choir’s artistic director beginning with the 2005/06 season.
