Piano in Love With Manos Kitsikopoulos and Makis Provatas
A pianistic tribute to love’s great composers and authors.
Award-winning pianist Manos Kitsikopoulos selects and performs the most beloved piano pieces, composing the soundtrack of love. Dedications by great composers, letters, dreams and myths bring into focus the qualities of eros and love. From anticipating one’s love interest and the desire to claim them, to love’s ecstasy, pain and self-sacrifice, as expressed by Franz Liszt, Manos Hadjidakis, Astor Piazzola, Franz Schubert and Claude Debussy, as well as by The Beatles and Radiohead. A tribute to love, from the Romantic period, the waltzes and the tangos, to Impressionism and contemporary pop music. The musical part is accompanied by a small “stage” on which a live radio show is taking place, curated and presented by journalist Makis Provatas. The radio part is intertwined with the musical one, building a dynamic relationship with the audience. The action in the radio show intervenes in the flow of the musical pieces, presenting texts from the world literature and cinema, interspersed with news stories both unimpressive and sensational.
