Third concert of the world premiere of the visionary work Music for Trees by Garrett List, as part of the Mithra Jazz Festival Liège

Music for Trees is a work written in 1986-89, originally for synthesizer and rearranged over time for acoustic instruments. It was never played in its entirety although this was the artist’s wish. Conceived as a tribute to trees around the world, Music for Trees is emblematic of Garrett List’s poetic openness, eclecticism and humanism. The work is divided into 24 pieces that correspond to the 24 hours of the day. Each of these parts is devoted to a kind of world tree.

The program of the concert of May 12, 2022 offers the following works of the visionary cycle:

Electronic Works
4. The Baobab
20. The Cherry Tree of Japan
16. The Willow
21. The Birch
