102. Nightmare before Christmas? Schnittke‘s ‘Silent Night‘

Everyone knows and loves Silent Night, right? But you probably haven’t heard it sound quite like this. It probably won’t actually give you nightmares, but it will certainly stay with you (Listening time 7mins: podcast 3′, music 7′).

And despite the bleak music, I do wish you a happy Christmas!

Music here with pictures, played by Starikov Stepan and Nail Mavliudov:

or on Spotify or Apple Music played by Daniel Hope and Alexei Botvinov (which you can also buy here as a download for less than £1):
