Castles and fortresses, kings and dukes have always stimulated the imagination and stand for romance through the centuries. Aristocrats and lords of the manor as patrons of arts, the emotional music culture at the courts and legendary castles are programmatical subjects which dedicates the series "Castle Concerts" from many aspects. The fact that romance in music encompasses much more than the so named epoch makes many of the compositions from different centuries and their interpretation by outstanding artists, which are presented in this series, palpable. Listen to that in the concert presented here. The fact that even Baroque composers put a lot of emotion into their most formal rigorous compositions can be experienced during this festive Advent programme. The concert, titled "Royal Christmas- Joy To The World," provides an insight into the music culture at the English court during the Baroque period, when all kinds of musical art in Europe were unthinkable without the king's and ruler's role as patron of the arts. The German landgraves of Hessen-Homberg has also encouraged arts. But above all, they have left us with the castle church in Bad Homburg vor der Hohe. A wonderful place, where the four musicians of the ensemble Nel Dolce virtuously performed strongly different compositions on reconstructed historical instruments. Let yourself be carried away to a glorious time and enjoy baroque joie de vivre.
