Dear AV colleagues,
The Norwegian Institute of Recorded Sound (NIRS) follows up on the great feedback we got over the last few years for our musical Advent Calendar with more old, old... ooold recordings! After all, it has now become a tradition!
From the 1st of December and every day until Christmas Day, we will present a vintage recording, with its original historical noises for an authentic "good old times" feeling. In this year's edition of the calendar we follow Arne Dorumsgaard vision for the collection and presents Edvard Grieg's music in historical recordings, not necessarily Christmas music... However, we are including a link to the previous year's calendar entries, so you can enjoy music for Christmas as well.
New sound clip(s) and text will be published every day on our website (link below), and you can also listen to the last two year's music!
Do you wish to receive a daily reminder with the day's link(s)? - just answer this email with a "yes please"!<mailto:[log in to unmask]>
and/or you can also sign up as 'attending' on the Facebook event (link below, and we'll use your facebook email).
(NB: if you have received dailies before, you will automatically receive this year's as well - no need to sign up again)
