80 years of the Athens State Orchestra Vadim Repin in Piotr Ilyich Tchaikovsky’s Violin Concerto




The official festive concert to celebrate the Athens State Orchestra’s 80th birthday could be nothing less than a glorious musical event of the highest artistic value. Soprano Celia Costea is the soloist in the lyrical Vocalise by the eminent Greek composer Nestor Taylor, while ASO’s artistic director Lucas Karytinos conducts a new reading of Mahler’s “titanic” (and not just in name!) First symphony, one of the most popular and most stirring symphonies of the late Romanticism. At the heart of the programme, legendary violin virtuoso Vadim Repin brings his sparkling artistry to a performance of a veritable heavyweight of the violin repertoire.
