Mythical Moves - Megaron Athens Concert Hall

Mythical Moves Athens State Orchestra - Megaron Orchestra in Residence

ΚΟΑ 2020-21

Overview

German musical romanticism often draws its themes from the realm of myth, bringing to Apollonian narratives and images the Dionysian dimension of a music charged with the strongest emotions. In tonight’s concert, we will enjoy three milestones of the romantic movement, conducted by the artistic director of the Athens State Orchestra, Lucas Karytinos, with the solistic assistance of leading American baritone Thomas Hampson. They are joined by two of the finest ASO musicians, who will unfold their talent interpreting the two main heroes of Cervantes’ masterpiece, the visionary Don Quixote and his faithful servant Sancho Panza.
