At the threshold of the 20th century II - We and the world VII
With the kind support of the German Embassy in Athens
In collaboration with the French Embassy in Athens and the French Institute of Greece
Both Debussy’s atmospheric Nocturnes and Strauss’s ambitious tone poem Don Quixote are typical works of the late 19th century, a period of anxious searching in the arts which opened up new modes of expression. In keeping with the spirit of Easter, the Athens State Orchestra will also be ‘chanting’ an alternative ‘Christos Anesti’ [Christ has risen] as it was re-imagined in the fertile imagination of the fine composer, Petros Petridis.
