Tracing His Footsteps through Time

Mikis Theodorakis
Pallini Music High School
  • 30 Mar 2023

Concert - Mikis Theodorakis tribute cycle

Stavros Niarchos Hall of the Greek National Opera - SNFCC

Starts at: 19.30 | clock

The Pallini Music High School, in production partnership with the Greek National Opera, presents a concert performance featuring its music ensembles inside the Stavros Niarchos Hall - an evening dedicated to the life and work of the great Greek composer Mikis Theodorakis.

The school's students will be taking us on a journey down the paths he roved in life, and down the ones he opened up as a composer. The school's music ensembles will be spotlighting as many aspects of Theodorakis' broad musical output as possible, and foregrounding the varied relationships between his work and both the Greek musical tradition and poetry.

The chamber orchestra, philharmonic orchestra, and chorus of the Pallini Music High School will be leading audiences on a journey down éntekhno (Greek art music) roads and symphonic avenues forged by Theodorakis. The school's la?kó (Greek folk) orchestra will roam some of his best-known songs and melodies. And traditional musicians shall marry the Byzantine East with the literary West.

The Pallini Music High School, founded in 1988, was the first such state music school in Greece. In addition to its regular curriculum, the school has introduced a number of annual music and educational events held at the school itself and at other venues, in partnership with a range of institutions that include the National and Kapodistrian University of Athens, the Goethe-Institut Athen, L'Institut français de Grèce, Onassis Stegi, Megaron - The Athens Concert Hall, the Odeon of Herodes Atticus, and the Pallas Theatre.
