Greek Festival: Elias Andriopoulos concert
2013 July 26, 27
Ancient Epidaurus Little Theatre
From the ‘Letters to Makrygiannis’ to Elytis’ ‘Orientations’ and the ‘Odes’ of Andreas Kalvos, Elias Andriopoulos’ choices as a composer have shared roots in the poetic stone, the Greek rock. This is why the Little Theatre of Ancient Epidaurus is perhaps the most suitable venue of all for songs that have travelled from the fight for and the restitution of Greek democracy in 1974 to Brussels and Oxford. A quartet (piano, violin, cello and mandolin) and classically-trained voices are called upon to strike a balance between the epic style and the lyricism of poetry set to music.
With Tasis Christoyannis & Theodora Baka.
Featuring Eleni & Souzana Vougioukli
