This experimental singer of her generation released her album Feljött immár az a csillag (The Star has Already Risen) in November 2020. The concert builds on these Christmas carols although it is augmented with arrangements of Reformed church songs. The singer has said the following about the process of creation: “We live in a world that is out of joint, but the year’s major feast days can provide a framework for our lives. In this order, the end of the year holds a special place; for me, it always means a kind of internal summing up, a closure, waiting, and a new beginning. ‘The star has already risen, wake up, those who sleep!’ our beautiful Christmas carol goes. The idea of preparing for Advent is an integral part of our European culture, it has inspired not only folk tradition but poets, too, thus the poem by Ágnes Nemes Nagy was the acciaccatura of the album. The musical world leads away from the grey, gloomy mood towards the light, just as the three wise kings, slowly, step by step, reached the cradle. Dániel Szabó’s intelligent and sensitive musical approach, while preserving the purity of traditional Christmas carols, endows traditional Christmas songs with a new audio-image.”
