udiscovermusic. Sharon Kelly writes......Winter Tales is a new album featuring Christmas music reimagined by star musicians inspired by their childhoods and homelands. The album includes 12 very personal and diverse reflections from Roger and Brian Eno, Peter Gregson, Víkingur Ólafsson, Hania Rani and Dobrawa Czocher, Balmorhea, Mari Samuelsen, Ane Brun, Dustin O'Halloran and Bryan Senti, ABBOTT, Vanbur, Classical Sundays and Joep Beving.

Winter Tales ends peacefully with Sinfonia, Joep Beving's reworking of the pastoral movement from Bach's Christmas Oratorio. "I wanted to give Bach's gentle piece an otherworldly feel by adding layers of synth and noise," he explained. "I hope I managed to add something to the beautiful composition with this version. It was such a tremendous joy to work on."
