The repatriation of the Diaspora IV: Germany

ergon_ensemble-1920Χ1080-20-21

Overview

Post-war Germany demonstrates that it renounces in practice the dark pages of its recent Nazi past and engages actively in providing moral, financial and practical support to the musical avant-garde. Generations of Greek composers studying at Germany’s musical academies find fertile ground for developing their musical activities and choose German cities in which to settle. Kounadis in Freiburg, Terzakis in Leipzig, Borboudakis and Gourzi in Munich, as well as the very young Koumara in Köln – all of them have been and still are present at the forefront of developments in the music scene of their era. The prolific Ergon ensemble presents characteristic works of theirs, many of them for the first time in Greece.
