Overview

WITH A TWIST

Theremin virtuoso Pamelia Stickney and top Greek musical saw soloist Nikos Giousef unite their otherworldly tone colours. Accompanied by Irene Tiniakou at the piano and the electric organ, and George Katsanos at the analogue synthesizer, they offer a novel listening experience in pre-classical works by Purcell, Handel, and Bach; Romantic works by Rachmaninoff and Massenet; and modern works by Stravinsky, Bartók, Messiaen, and Sfetsas. The group will go one step further: in collaboration with Telemachus Moussas at the electric guitar, they will proceed to an improvisational finale.
