Kalamata Dance Megaron

Concert for the inauguration of Kalamata Dance Megaron

The Athens State Orchestra is participating in the events of the inauguration of the Kalamata Dance Megaron, interpreting popular pieces of the repertoire that accompany the Art of Dance, but also two pieces of a festive character, directly linked to the sense of inauguration. The first of them is the ‘Overture to The Consecration of the House’, written for the inauguration of the Theater in der Josefstadt in Vienna (October 1822). The second, ‘Celebration I’ was especially created by the distinguished composer and pianist Stathis Giftakis in November 2018 for the premiere of the Kalamata Symphonic Orchestra.
