Info

With his composition „O Jubel, O Freud“ (O Jubilation, O Joy) Alfred Bösendorfer invites us to spend Christmas in Austria. After a festive intro in baroque style, we hear one of the most famous German-language lullabies with its melody from Salzburg: “Still, still, still” (quiet, quiet, quiet). As the lyrics demand silence so the baby can sleep, this passage requires very soft and tender performance. A short intermezzo in 3/4 time leads us to the traditional Austrian Christmas song “Da droben vom Berge” (from the high mountain). Alfred Bösendorfer presents this folk tune in a compelling manner, depicting a beautiful, snowy alpine world. After the short, cheerful waltz “Auf, steh auf!” (Stand up!), a splendid “Gloria” in baroque style leads the Alpine Christmas experience to a festive conclusion.
Alfred Bösendorfer created a technically easy and attractively arranged piece that despite of its simplicity offers many possibilities for musical elaboration. With an optional monophonic vocal part, “O Jubel, O Freud” can be performed with vocals by children’s or youth choir.

1. Still, still, still
