Alkinoos Ioannidis: Diptych

MMA exterior



Alkinoos Ioannidis presents two aspects of his creative career, taking us where words and notes become one. In the first part will be heard the Greek premiere of his incidental music for Euripides’ Bacchae (translated into Modern Greek by George Chimonas), for female and male voice, actor, two oboes, percussion, female chorus, and string orchestra (Music Award of the Cyprus Theatre Organisation 2009-2011, St. Petersburg State Hermitage Symphony Orchestra, 2012). The second part is dedicated to songwriting, a sacred art that is often misunderstood. Songs from the entire discography of Alkinoos Ioannidis are rendered through a new orchestrational approach, arranged for guitar, voice, female chorus, and string orchestra. The composer himself appears on stage as an actor, musician, and singer.
