GREEK LOVE POEMS FROM THE ANTIQUITY TO THE 17TH CENTURY
Friday 14 March, 7.15pm – Great Hall, Hellenic Centre, London
The Hellenic Centre in London presents a world premiere of an original song cycle by the well-known composer Christos Pittas who has set to music poetry by Sappho, Sophocles, Euripides and Kornaros, among others.
The songs are written in the original Greek texts, which also include some 16th century Cypriot love poems from the ‘Rime d’ Amore’ manuscript found and kept in Venice. They will be performed by three highly acclaimed Greek artists, the mezzo soprano Margarita Syngeniotou, the violinist Pantelis Stamatelos and the guitarist Antonis Hatzinikolaou. The composer will introduce the concert.
