Overview

CONCERTS BY THE ATHENS STATE ORCHESTRA

 
Alban Berg was one of Skalkottas’ most famous fellow students in Arnold Schoenberg’s composition class: his labyrinthal but atmospheric Violin Concerto will be performed by Tianwa Yang, a Chinese soloist already familiar to Athenian audiences. The programme includes the world premiere of a symphonic work by multi-award-winning young composer Orestes Papaioannou, written in memory of Nikos Skalkottas, and commissioned by the Athens State Orchestra.

– Orestes Papaioannou: ‘Un hommage…’, a tribute to Nikos Skalkottas
(commissioned by the Athens State Orchestra for the 70th anniversary of the composer’s death)
– Alban Berg: Concerto for Violin and Orchestra
Nikos Skalkottas: 36 Greek Dances, Series I
