Weihnachtsbaum (‘Christmas Tree’) is a piano recital based on works that are inspired by the Christmas winter season. The Grima-Gialanze` Duo will (Gisèle Grima and Erika Gialanze’) be performing pieces for four-hands as well as piano solo in a festive programme of pieces by Liszt, Debussy, Schumann & Tchaikovsky. The concert takes its title directly from F. Liszt’s original work, a delightful and supremely varied suite of 12 pieces. Following a short interval, the pianists will take to the solo stage to perform excerpts from Schumann’s Kinderszenen, Op. 15 and Debussy’s Footsteps in the Snow and The Snow is Dancing. The concert will come to a close with a selection of pieces from Tchaikovsky’s much-loved Nutcracker Suite, Op. 71.
The recital will be held on Saturday 16th December at 7:30pm, Palazzo de la Salle, Malta Society of Arts, Valletta. Entrance is by FREE donation with all proceeds going towards the Dar Merħba Bik Foundation. The concert is suitable for children (8+) and especially encourages families to attend.
“The Grima-Gialanze` Duo is a good example of self-driven musicians delivering exciting programmes and working on their own initiative. Their playing is elegant, communicative, and most importantly, honest.” [The Sunday Times, Malta]
