Athens State Orchestra: Nikos Skalkottas – 70th Death Anniversary

Overview

CONCERTS BY THE ATHENS STATE ORCHESTRA
 
As we approach the end of the Skalkottas Year, we again turn to the oeuvre of the great Greek representative of the 20th-century musical avant-garde. Young double bassist Michalis Semsis, already a distinguished member of the legendary Leipzig Gewandhaus Orchestra, plays Skalkottas’ vertiginously demanding Concerto, while Stefanos Tsialis presents parts of his practically unknown Second Suite. The concert opens with the symphonic work chosen by the jury of the ‘Nikos Skalkottas’ International Composition Contest.
