About the concert

Offering two delightful concert experiences on one day, this second concert, Christmas Trees ushers in the festive season with a musical celebration of trees and a rare performance of Liszt’s Christmas Trees (Weinachtsbaum). Dedicated to his first grandchild Daniela, this show’s centrepiece is Liszt at his simplest and most enchanting.
