Celebrate Xmas and New Year with music by Liszt, Johann Strauss, Handel and Tchaikovsky
Liszt: Christmas Tree Suite (excerpts) [15’]
Strauss (arr. Rummel): Blue Danube/Radetzky March [15’]
Handel (arr. Czerny): For unto us/Hallelujah from “Messiah” [10’]
Tchaikovsky (arr. Langer): Nutcracker Suite [20’]
Christmas and New Year Treats for All. A festive mix of Liszt, Strauss, Handel and Tchaikovsky. Liszt’s beautiful Christmas Tree Suite is a neglected masterpiece for Piano Duet, and the arrangements of Strauss and Handel (by Carl Czerny!) are simply delicious. Who doesn’t love Tchaikovsky’s brilliant Nutcracker Suite?!? Cheers!
