Georg Perlberg, the Siege of Athens

Greek Revolution III

Manolis Kalomiris and Nikos Skalkottas are two pillars of Greek serious music composition in the first half of the 20th century. As, respectively, the founder of the National School of Music and a leading exponent of musical modernism, the two composers developed different musical idioms which are both valuable and beautiful in their own right. Kalomiris' robust Concerto, interpreted by Titos Gouvelis, and Skalkottas' imaginative Dances are living proof of the inexhaustible riches of Greek music.
