Greek Modernism and Beyond: music of Skalkottas, Christou, Xenakis, Aperghis, and Antoniou.
An outgrowth of my course on Modernisms at New England Conservatory, this concert explores the phenomenon of Modernism and its transformations in the work of seminal Greek composers of the 20th and 21st centuries. The concert will feature Skalkottas’ Ten Sketches for Strings and selections from the 32 Pieces for Solo Piano, Christou’s Six Songs of T.S. Elliott, Xenakis’ Reboads A and B, Aperghis’ Récitation 3, and Antoniou’s Celebrations VII. I will be coaching and conducting all performances.
