The aging Liszt’s 12-piece suite titled Christmas Tree (Weihnachtsbaum) depicts the intimate atmosphere of the holiday, as well as the sense of loneliness and passing.
Liszt has composed this piece for one of his grandchildren, the sixteen-year-old Daniela von Bülow, who – with many years of study behind her – had already been a renowned and talented pianist. At the advent concert in Eperjes (Prešov) on December 6th three pieces of the Christmas Tree suite will be on the programme and then at Balázs Fülei’s solo recital on the following day in Kassa (Kosiče) the audience will have the opportunity to listen to works by Liszt and Kodály.
We wish you happy and peaceful holidays with the following recording of the Christmas Tree
