Featuring singers Eleonora Zouganeli and Giannis Haroulis
The major composer celebrates his 80th birthday with a magical concert at the Odeon of Herodes Atticus. With his legendary life and an active career spanning almost 60 years, encompassing songs, compositions for symphonic orchestras, film and theatre scores, operas and oratorios, Markopoulos also founded his own school of Greek music with his ‘Back to the Roots’ movement. His symphonic works incorporate Greek traditional instruments such as lyre and santouri, offering an innovative style of international classical music.
The composer will choose among his greatest hits for this anniversary concert, drawing on albums such as Ithageneia, Thiteia and Chroniko, as well as memorable instrumentals which met with widespread acclaim and which, even to this day, captivate music lovers, being passed down from one generation to the next.
Eleonora Zouganeli and Giannis Haroulis, popular young artists with amazing performing skills and a respect to classical repertoire, were invited by the composer to partake in this celebration.
