For some, Advent is a time of reflection. For the Philharmonic Five, it is a time of adventure. That's why the four string players of the Vienna Philharmonic and pianist Adela Liculescu combine classical music with pop and waltzes with Christmas carols in their pre-Christmas concert. Georg Friedrich Händel and Johann Strauss meet Fritz Kreisler and Nat King Cole - whereby they are given a new guise through arrangements by the Philharmonic Five. This musical journey through a wide variety of epochs and styles is complemented by Max Bruch's Piano Quintet in G minor from 1886, a gem of the piano quintet literature that was only awakened from its Sleeping Beauty slumber 100 years after its composition with the first printing.
