Pavel Sporcl and Blue Christmas in Liverpool Philharmonic

A beautiful Blue Christmas is the order of these late December days thanks to world famous Czech musician Pavel Sporcl with his unique blue violin… 

This year Pavel is the special guest and what a gift he is.

This annual concert exudes warmth and atmosphere and he contributes greatly.

But then again every single person on the stage does, too.

… Back to that ‘blue violin’. It is as distinctive and striking as its charismatic owner.

« It matches my eyes, » declares Pavel

Whether he touched our heartstrings with Ave Maria or Still Still Still, Pavel is consistently mesmerising.

He mentioned his album Christmas on the Blue Violin.

That said, when you hear Pavel on such haunting performances as Stille Nacht you cannot fail to be lifted.

I stood applauding – feeling like I was inside a giant snow globe as we all sang White Christmas.
