A joyful and wonderfully inventive variant on a traditional holiday favorite. This orchestral celebration of "The Twelve Days" presents individual instrumental sections of the orchestra, the full symphonic orchestra, and finally music itself as the twelve "gifts" that are proffered by one's true love. Each section displays its wares by playing excerpts from recognizable classics of Vivaldi, Mozart, Beethoven, Tchaikovsky, Brahms, Rimsky-Korsakov and others. The Twelve Gifts of Christmas is entertaining holiday fun for young and old alike.
