ERT National Symphony Orchestra - Anastasios Symeonidis
Fête de la Musique
Works by Skalkottas and Mendelssohn
On the occasion of the ‘2019 Skalkottas Year’ (this year marks the 70-year anniversary since the death of Nikos Skalkottas), the ERT National Symphony Orchestra will pay tribute to the great Greek composer, performing the ballet The Sea, a series of vivid images drawn from the marine world, revolving around fantasy elements or the phantasmagoria of ballet dancing, as well as marine traditions, common in folk tales. The music could be considered an example of symphonic suite.
The concert will also include two of Mendelssohn’s major works, also sea-themed, inspired from his travels in Scotland in 1829: The Hebrides Overture and The Scottish Symphony, with the former depicting the Staffa island and its enormous cave. The work brings to mind the sounds of the sea and the different phases of the sea, from calm to tempest.
