With the CD “Beautiful Sounds of Europe”, Christine takes the listeners on a musical trip through the different regions of Europe. Her penultimate album “Star of the East” includes a fine selection of rearranged popular and classical Christmas songs in a variety of instrumentation. With her latest recording “Sounds of Music” Christine sets a landmark of her career again.
