A reception with refreshments and a Christmas carol sing-along will follow the concert. Tickets can be purchased at the door or online.
The Liebeslieder Waltzes are love songs written for voices and 4-hand piano. The lyrics for all but one song is from Georg Friedrich Daumer's Polydora, a collection of poems based on European folk songs. The final song in Op.65, by the great German Romantic poet Goethe, is a moving tribute to the muses who inspire all the artists of the world. The songs encompass a variety of moods and sentiments. Some are ravishingly beautiful. Others are simply exhilarating.
