Contemporary readings on Dimitrie Cantermir's work
A mixed group of students of Greek traditional, European and modern music from the Department of Musical Science & Art (DMSA) propose new approaches to works from the collection assembled by Dimitrie Cantermir, 18th century humanist, philosopher, historian, musician and musicologist. His work, The Book of Science of Music echoes to this day much of the scholarly Eastern language music of his time, where court music of Constantinople converges with improvisation and Eurasian tropical traditions. The music ensemble combines ancient and modern instruments with a percussion ensemble and a group of improvising musicians.
The Paths of Sounds... After
Concert by students in the postgraduate programme “Musical Arts - Greek Musical Traditions” of the Department of Musical Science & Art with emphasis on music arrangement, recomposition and contemporary composition drawing inspiration from Greek and Mediterranean musical cultures. Some of the most talented Greek musicians of the new generation are experimenting with what comes ''after'' and opening up to new ideas. A fertile dialogue with related traditions and international trends which reflects the relentless pursuit and free creation in today's trends and artistic approaches.
