Mannheim Steamroller creator and composer Chip Davis has been recognized with 19 gold, eight multi-platinum and four platinum records and the group is the #1 Christmas music artist in all of history. The group's signature sound, characterized as "classical music meets rock and roll", established a distinctive new genre. While Mannheim Steamroller's music is uniquely moving by itself, Christmas Live captures the experience, sights and sounds of the group live in concert with this holiday release. The beloved holiday performance by some of the most talented musicians today and an intense multimedia presentation results in a powerful and emotional Christmas experience. This 56-minute Christmas concert features many favorite Mannheim Steamroller Christmas classics. "Joy to the World" perhaps best epitomizes the distinctive Mannheim Steamroller sound: powerful synthesized melodies and harmonies, an intense drive and pathos, and skillful ornamentation. The accompanying fireworks on a huge, over-stage screen add a striking visual dimension to the song. Several Renaissance-inspired numbers like "In dulci Jubilo" and "Wassail, Wassail" showcase unusual Renaissance instruments and are paired with a rich, on-screen portrayal of a Renaissance feast. The instrumental, theatrical, and multimedia performances are completely evocative of the Spirit of Christmas. Mannheim Steamroller's Christmas concerts have become a holiday tradition, much like decorating the tree, hanging stockings and exchanging presents. Christmas Live has become a permanent part of any Christmas celebration. Written by Anonymous See less
