Καραϊσκάκης- Παπαστεφάνου


Mendelssohn and Beethoven, two composers inextricably linked with the German Romantic movement, represent two tangent worlds whose essence could not be more different. They may have the same aesthetic origins, but the music of the former always flows effortlessly, soberly and delicately, while the latter loves conflict and drama, fierce passions, painful defeats and hard-won triumphs. Two distinguished Greek soloists who are also active as performers of chamber music works, Alexandra Papastefanou and Alexis Karaiskakis-Nastos, draw on their talent and experience to bring these two worlds into sharp contrast, through well-known works for cello and piano written by the two composers.

Τριο Ελ Γκρέκο


Trio El Greco

From the mature, introverted German romanticism of Brahms and the more extroverted music of Dvořák, which draws on the Czech folk music tradition, to the moody style of Armenian composer Babadjanian, the ever-active Trio El Greco presents a less frequently visited side of the repertoire for piano trio, revealing unexpected similarities between these quite different composers.
