Overview


CONCERTS BY THE ATHENS STATE ORCHESTRA

In collaboration with the Canadian Embassy in Athens

Athens State Orchestra’s principal horn Kostas Siskos is the soloist in Christos Hatzis’ Concerto, a melancholy meditation on the dark moments of the 20th century and mankind’s uncertain future. Richard Strauss’ Serenade, an early work, and Beethoven’s exuberant, graceful, and optimistic Symphony No. 4 provide the perfect counterpoint to Hatzis’ sombre work.

– Richard Strauss: Serenade in E-flat major for 13 wind instruments, Op. 7
– Christos Hatzis: Winter Solstice, concerto for French horn and string orchestra
– Ludwig van Beethoven: Symphony No. 4 in B-flat major, Op. 60
