Neil Simon & Irina Kulikova
We are pleased to share five World Premières, seven traditional Christmas songs in the most delighful new arrangements, two Spanish Christmas originals and three Winter day-dreams: all beautiful works by composers that are most dear to us. These include Vincent Lindsey-Clark's two beautiful miniatures on Neil's childhood memories, Nicholas a catchy father Christmas song, Wouter's heartfelt song for those who have lost a loved one, Irina's personal goodbye to her first guitar teacher Victor Kozlov - a composer and guitarist taken away from us by Covid-19 - and a jazzy Winter Russian song from Konstantin who also provides many of the wonderful guitar accompaniments.

We hope you enjoy this music as much as we do. Share it with your loved ones. Bring some light to the people that face the holidays in loneliness. Merry Christmas!

Irina & Neil
