 Marta Szlubowska’s Christmas CD with Mississippi String Quartet shares magical music of the holiday season, scoring a longtime goal for the Jackson concert violinist and spreading the Christmas joy she takes to heart.

“That has always been my dream, to make a Christmas CD,” says Szlubowska. It’s a desire first prompted by a CD made by string quartet friends in Minnesota. “I just loved listening to it so much, I’m like, I want to do one! I want to do one!

“It wasn’t quite as easy work as I thought, by listening to it,” she says, with a fond laugh. “It’s a labor of love.” The arrangements for the string quartet in ”Winter Holiday” comprise a full-fledged salute to the season with jazzy Christmas songs and carols, and also music from Tchaikovsky’s “The Nutcracker” and a Jewish selection, “Chanukah, Oh Chanukah.”

“I can listen to it year-round,” she says of Christmas music. “The jazzy ones and the hymns at church — all of that is beautiful.” With a string quartet at the helm, “It’s like a small orchestra. … It’s really beautiful how it comes together,” in arrangements that highlight each player for results that are both lush and intimate. “We’ve had people listen to ‘The Nutcracker’ and say, ‘I’ve never heard this version before!’”
