The repatriation of the Diaspora III: France

Ergon ensemble


The “Repatriation of the Diaspora” is a joint project of Ergon Ensemble and Megaron, whose aim is to introduce the public to Greek composers of contemporary music or Greek composers active outside Greece. This year, the active instrumental ensemble, which in the last few years has been regularly presenting us with masterful readings of works of the contemporary repertoire, presents four chamber music works of Greek composers who were or are based in Paris. The French capital, a music centre open to pioneering explorations and experimentation, has been home to many generations of major internationally acclaimed composers, who studied or worked there. Standing out among them are Greek 20th century composers, such as the towering figure of post-war avant-garde music Iannis Xenakis (1922-2001), the imaginatively revolutionary Georges Aperghis (b. 1945), along with dynamic representatives of today’s musical avant-garde, such as Nicolas Tzortzis (b. 1978) and the very young but rising Filippos Sakagian (b. 1992).
