"Jingle Bells" is a Christmas hit known all over the world, so why not play it in some diverse global styles? This was Konrad Koselleck's initial thought when he began working on this arrangement. The opening takes us straight into a Disney movie, then some Irish flutes invite you to take a sleigh ride somewhere up north in Lapland. Down by the river Volga a Russian hero sings a ballad and a complete Rimsky-Korsakov orchestra answers. A harp invites you for a French waltz a la Ravel . . . or is it Strauss? Thereafter a Bavarian polka sets the right tempo to finish the song, sounding like a Big Band with a boulevard of Hollywood strings before Rudolf leaves us with a last farewell. Just have fun.
