Product details

Arguably Australia's most acclaimed mandolinist, Kurt Jensen performs an international programme of sparkling and entertaining Christmas carols.

Joined by mandola player Joan Harris, harpist Julie Raines, guitarist Tamara Leamon, pianist May Gavin, mezzo-soprano Suzann Frisk and the Scandinavian Choir, Jensen performs carols which range from mediaeval to modern classics and convey both the joyous and reflective moods which the season of Christmas brings. This unique and exciting program, features carols from England, France, Australia, Germany, Denmark, the USA and original compositions by Swedish composer Ebbe Grimms land.

The warm, intimate sounds of the mandolin, mandola, harp, piano and guitar, combine with the rich and thrilling tones of the superb Scandinavian choir to convey the warmth and bonhomie of a home during the festive season.
