Works for violin and piano Chamber Music

Παντελιάδης- Ζαχαριας


If one considers that all the works of this evening’s concert were written over a period of fifty or so years, one cannot but admire the many and varied musical styles under development during the first half of the 20th century. During the years when Ravel (and with him, all of Paris) was discovering jazz, Szymanowski in Poland was studying the Greek antiquity and the Islamic culture, writing music of a new-found sensuality. At the same time, in Vienna, where Brahms had reigned supreme for decades, Schoenberg was teaching (among others, to Nikos Skalkottas) a new atonal musical language, foreshadowing an unprecedented revolution. Violinist George Zacharias and pianist Marios Panteliadis present typical works for violin and piano of this turbulent and fascinating era.

Τριο Ελ Γκρέκο


Trio El Greco

From the mature, introverted German romanticism of Brahms and the more extroverted music of Dvořák, which draws on the Czech folk music tradition, to the moody style of Armenian composer Babadjanian, the ever-active Trio El Greco presents a less frequently visited side of the repertoire for piano trio, revealing unexpected similarities between these quite different composers.
