The internationally renowned pianists Irina Georgieva and Irena Gulzarova, a well-rehearsed duo, and the Oratorio Choir Baselland perform together at the Don Bosco Music and Cultural Center in Basel and at the Stadtkirche Liestal.
The Liebeslieder waltzes, op. 52 by Johannes Brahms are at the center. In dialogue with this are piano pieces for two and four hands by Franz Liszt and Antonín Dvořák.
With his Liebesliederwalzer op. 52, Johannes Brahms created a work for four singing voices with four-hand piano accompaniment.
In 18 different waltzes, everything revolves around love; sometimes cheerful, sometimes sad, sometimes funny, sometimes melancholic, sometimes fast, sometimes slow, the various facets of love are presented by the choir and pianists in a varied sequence.
The concert will be conducted by Fritz Krämer, conductor and choir director of the Oratorio Choir Baselland. www.fritzkraemer.de
