Format: Audio CD
We all have our favourite Christmas Carols. I came late to "O Holy Night". What a creation! How melodic it is! It commands one to fall to one's knees and for once I'm happy to oblige. While I cannot speak a word of French (or its pidgin variety), there's an additional magic to the Gallic version. Until recently, I thought it was a one-hit wonder from the proverbial school-teacher but no - it was penned by Adolphe Adam.

This famous old recording of Giselle wears its years lightly - and the remastering has freshened it further. As it contains some sixty percent of the score, it's essentially a symphonic reduction where its balletic DNA is somewhat secondary. Karajan's feel for woodwind was never more acute. The famous grip is evident and yet lightness and transparency are all. Karajan respects its bridging material in particular where Adam is drawing a breath before saying the next thing of note. Enraptured, the Vienna Philharmonic brings its A-game to town.

Giselle is not the greatest music in the world but it has a charm and redemptive power all of its own. It is edenic, predating the Fall. One emerges anew from its arabesques and reveries. Who can resist the Lord of the Dance?
