For the first time in Greece, the piano school of the Athens Conservatoire is presenting a concert featuring solo piano works and piano pieces for four hands composed exclusively by the great German philosopher Friedrich Nietzsche. The concert titled Nietzsche Played the Piano will be held on the GNO Alternative Stage on Saturday 22 June, at 20.30.

Only a few people know that Nietzsche, in addition to being a philosopher, poet, and philologist, was also a skilled pianist and created many pieces for different ensembles. Doing justice to the term Alternative for the stage that will host this so interesting yet completely unknown music, the programme will also include unfinished works and themes for counterpoint exercises.

The students of the Athens Conservatoire will pit themselves against a legendary philosopher, bringing out his more sensitive side as a musician who struggled to express himself through playing and composing, battling against silence, contemplation, and the passage of time.

Anthony Hatzimoysis, professor of Contemporary Philosophy at the University of Athens, will open the concert with an introductory address.

Admission will be free upon priority vouchers that will be distributed from Monday 17 June 2024, at 12.00, exclusively via ticket services.
