Street named after Helen Buchholtz

    Helen Buchholtz (b. Esch-sur-Alzette, Grand Duchy of Luxembourg, 1877 – d. 1953, Luxembourg City, Luxembourg) was a music composer. She emigrated to Germany in 1913 but came back to Luxembourg after her husband’s death in 1921. She dedicated her life to music, keeping constant communication and work assignments back home in Luxemburg when she moved to Germany and taking up her career in Luxemburg when she returned. She left around 136 compositions in manuscript, including 53 Lieder (settings of Luxembourgian, German, and French texts), nineteen choral works, fourteen piano sonatas, 38 character pieces and dances for piano, eight works for symphony orchestra, and six works for wind ensemble, sixteen of which were published during her lifetime.
