CD A0136: Winter Tales

Winter Tales by Nadia Birkenstock

CD cover: Winter Tales by Nadia BirkenstockA Christmas album from Nadia Birkenstock - "The filigree sound of the harp and Birkenstock's clear, tender voice merged into an atmospheric unity. One felt as if sitting in a Scottish country house in front of a crackling fire, listening to the playing of an itinerant musician while outside the wind is wafting over the plain." Rheinische Post
