One of Germany s best-loved classical performers joins forces with a legendary close-harmony group for a winter-themed album to bring warmth to the dark months of the year: Albrecht Mayer & The King s Singers . The interplay of colours, melodies and harmonies between these performers enchant and delight in Baroque, classical and seasonal favorites

Mayer, the oboist with the magical tone, is renowned for the sublime singing quality of his playing. On Let It Snow the tone of his oboe blends magnificently with the silky sounds of a group that has been entertaining audiences across the globe since 1968

This specially chosen mixed-genre programme is woven around the theme of winter: snow, ice, fireplaces, sleigh rides, Christmas, New Year’s, Chanukkah
