Ghent, Flanders, in a concert of its international Music Festival

Greek Roots

Ghent Festival of Flanders

It is with great pride that the Athens State Orchestra represents our Nation to the very important international Ghent Festival of Flanders. As an ambassador of the Greek musical creation, it interprets emblematic works by Nikos Skalkottas and Mikis Theodorakis under Stefanos Tsialis's baguette. The concert's programme is completed by popular pieces of the international repertoire; among them, George Gershwin's Rhapsody in Blue, where the multi-awarded Bulgarian pianist Evgeni Bozhanov will be the soloist.
