Mikis comes to Hamburg and Stuttgart!
“My whole life was a battle between the ideal and the reality, between the everyday and the vision.” Mikis Theodorakis is a political icon and musical ambassador of his country: with folklore, film music and avant-garde music he has caused a sensation. The 93-year-old legend still interferes – powerful in word and deed.
We are dedicating a concert to him. In the center of this concert will be his great Symphony No. 1. Also, on the program: The Suite No. 1 for piano and orchestra, a moving Adagio as one of the important works of his early years and the Rhapsody for cello and orchestra.
For the performance of these works Theodorakis decided to collaborate with one of the most innovative orchestras, the Argo Ensemble, under the direction of Ektoras Tartanis.
As the crowning achievement of this event Mikis Theodorakis will come to these concerts.
