MEGARON - THE ATHENS CONCERT HALL / ATHENS

1922

The maestro Miltos Logiadis will take the Athens State Orchestra and its audience on a fascinating musical journey to the point where the traditional and the scholarly, the national and the personal, meet.


As painful as the destruction of Asia Minor’s Greek civilization was a century ago, the treasures of its tradition will live on forever in the Greek collective national memory. Of course, this inexhaustible Greek tradition inspired outstanding symphonic works by important Greek composers, including Manolis Kalomiris (who was born in Smyrna), Petros Petridis, Constantinos Kydoniatis, and our contemporary, the prolific Dimitris Marangopoulos. 

Program:
Konstantinos Kydoniatis: Byzantine triptych
Dimitris Marangopoulos: Suite for classical kemençe and orchestra “Melita Gabes” (ASO premiere performance)
Manolis Kalomoiris: Nocturne for solo violin and orchestra (ASO premiere performance)
Island Pictures, for solo violin and orchestra (ASO premiere performance)
Petros Petridis: Ionian Suite
Béla Bartók: Dance Suite
