After quite a long wait, this was my first concert this year. With Giorgio Aristo (tenor) backed-up by the Choir of St. Sophia Greek Orthodox Church. In the program two world premiers: Panagiotis Liaropoulos: Ode for Orchestra, Moments in the Life of Orpheus (World Premiere),Kostis Kritsotakis: The Voyage of Odysseus (World Premiere), Songs of Theodorakis and Hadzidakis and Beethoven- Symphony No. 6, “Pastoral.
As we journey to this beautiful and historic country with some of Greece’s most exciting composers in works inspired by mythology. A new work by Athenian composer, Kostis Kritsotakis,taken from the journeys of Odysseus, features the Choir of St. Sophia Church. Also on the program, young Greek composer, Panos Liaropoulos’ The Song of Orpheus, and works by Greece’s two most famous composers, Theodorakis and Hadzidakis.
