Memory of Asia Minor

vyron_fidetzis_conc_philharm_athinon_ (c) Akriviadis


In his long musical career, maestro Byron Fidetzis has been firmly established in the conscience of Greek music afficionados as the interpreter par excellence of the Greek musical repertoire. Always focusing on the essence, insightful and keen to share, he has by far the best overall view of the entire Greek repertoire. That is why every single one of his Greek repertoire concert proposals is of special interest, as a revealing experience of the beauty and truth that lie hidden in the notes of our great composers. This time, Byron Fidetzis returns to major works of three main representatives of the National School, which acquire new dimensions viewed through the prism of the memory of the Asia Minor Catastrophe, stirring emotions and arousing feelings of national uplift.
