Journey to the Centre of Music
The concerto The Athens State Orchestra Concerts

ΚΟΑ 2020-21

Overview

“What do we expect to hear when the concert’s soloist appears on stage?” A string of excerpts from soloist parts (by Mozart, Bach, Tchaikovsky, Beethoven, Rachmaninoff, Prokofiev, and others), from the musicians of the ASO, which demonstrate the fascinating dynamics of the concept of the concerto through the centuries and, of course, the many faces of the classic heroic motif: “One opposite Many – From Polity to Music.”

A series of interactive concerts that seek to shed light on what connects contemporary listeners with the timeless symphonic music, bringing it closer to both newcomers to the form and music lovers who are already fans. Videos, speeches and music are combined to interactively portray various individual symphonic music genres. Well-known and obscure historical facts, personal stories, hidden symbolisms and motifs, as well as the magic of the works’ structure, are presented in an entertaining way.
