These Themed Christmas Trees Are Made From Old Magazines

CAR magazine This year we didn’t want to buy more crappy plastic Christmas decorations, so we decided to make our own. We collected all of our magazines and started folding them to turn them into paper cones. For every magazine, we came up with a theme, that fitted the identity of the magazine. We started with the DoubleD Christmas tree, made from a Playboy magazine. It was so much fun coming up...

これは、本当にすてきなクリスマス・アルバム。

Verbum caro factum est - a Christmas Greeting
Bach Collegium Japan Chorus Masato et Masaaki Suzuki

フランスでも、現代を代表するバッハ解釈者、といえば、ふつうに
クイケン、ガーディナー、エルヴェッグあたりと列挙される、マザアキ・スズキ;)

ラジオ・フランスではこのプラージュが紹介されていましたが:

Hark theheraldangels sing - pourchoeur mixte a cappella

その際にも、最初のcoupletは日本語で歌われている、としっかりフランス語で説明されていましたよ;)spotifyはこちら

…しかし、オザワやウチダのように、欧米に移住して世界的な名声を得る人はいたとしても、日本国内を拠点に世界のトップと伍す、というのは。。
Bisレーベルの存在、というものもあるかもしれませんが。。

こういうことをされてしまっては「所詮は西洋音楽だから、日本人奏者に対しては偏見があって、なかなか実力が認められないんですよ…」
などともいいづらくなってしまうのでは。。と、余計な心配もしたくなりますね。。;)

ともかく今年のノエルの贈り物は、これにて:

では、暖かくして、どうぞよいクリスマスをお過ごし下さい。

Very Merry Christmas to each and everyone!
