Christmas on the Blue Violin: that is the name of the first Christmas album by violinist Pavel Šporcl. He has created this album together with the world-famous Royal Liverpool Philharmonic orchestra and conductor Sebastian Lang - Lessing. The album contains the most famous as well as lesser-known Christmas melodies, songs and traditional carols in special arrangements for solo violin accompanied by the orchestra. It was released on the 3rd of November of this year by the publishing company Universal Music. The guests of the album are members of the Czech choir Boni Pueri and harpist Jana Boušková. Seventy musicians on one stage will join in a violin tour Cristmas on the Blue Violin. The concerts of this tour will be held in eleven cities in the Czech Republic.

"The Royal Liverpool Philharmonic is undoubtedly one of the best orchestras in the world. I have already cooperated with them several times but this has been the first time when we have made recordings together. It has been a highly enriching experience. Likewise, I have been amazed by the musicianship with the wonderful and world-renowned conductor Sebastian Lang - Lessing. I should not forget to mention the internationally acclaimed producer Jon Cohen who has already made several wonderful Christmas records. I myself have participated in the arranging of songs, especially my violin part," adds Pavel Šporcl about the recording in Liverpool. Besides the hit Jingle Bells, the magical carol Silent Night and Schubert's Ave Maria, the new album also includes the violinist's latest own composition Prayer.

"Music brings nations together. Since ancient times, thanks to music, people have been decorating the celebrations during Advent and Christmas time. Its beauty will enhance the atmosphere of the festive moments not only in churches and concert venues but also inside our homes. That's why I have made this record with Christmas carols and songs from different parts of the world that I like," says the violin virtuoso.

After the release of this album by Universal Music Music, there will follow the great tour PAVEL ŠPORCL - CHRISTMAS ON THE BLUE VIOLIN - GENERALI TOUR 2017. The main organizer of the tour is the vioinist's company ŠPORCL ARTS Agency. The series of concerts will start on the 4th of December in České Budějovice and finish on the 22nd of December in Karlovy Vary . During twelve concerts in eleven cities of the Czech Republic, seventy artists will meet on one stage. In Czech cities, the violinist will be accompanied by the Karlovy Vary Symphonic Orchestra, and in Moravia, he will be accompanied by the Philharmonic Orchestra of Bohuslav Martinů Zlín. Unique and spectacular concerts are decorated by choral voices of the renowned Czech boys choir Boni Pueri and the soprano of the double Thalia Award 2012 winner Jana Šrejma Kačírková. All concerts will be conducted by Jan Kučera, the chief conductor of the Karlovy Vary Symphonic Orchestra and a guest conductor of the National Theater. In Prague, the agency is preparing two concerts in the multifunctional area of Forum Karlín on the 19th and 20th of December. The special guest of these two concerts will be the prominent Czech harpist Jana Boušková. The record from the first concert held in the Karlín Forum, will be recorded by Czech Television.

The ŠPORCL ARTS Agency promises a great experience from unique all-evening Christmas concerts full of festive melodies, foreign as well as Czech songs and carols performed by all-star cast. The project will also continue in Šporcl's efforts to support Czech traditions, so listeners will be able to welcome the feast with songs such as Vánoce, Vánoce přicházejí (Christmas is coming). Of course, there cannot be missing the anthem of Czech Christmas Narodil se Kristus Pán (Christ the Lord was born) or music from the film Angel of the Lord 2 for which Pavel Šporcl recorded the theme song.
