Musical promenades at the Museums Ι - Skalkottas and his infulence on chamber music
A constant and dynamic presence in the Athens State Orchestra's chamber music concerts, the Athens String Quartet proposes an entirely Greek programme for this season centred on the great Nikos Skalkottas —an understandable choice, given that 2019 is Skalkottas Year. Alongside the composer's sensual Third Quartet and Dances, we will be hearing some of the more remarkable works from his repertoire —works which amply demonstrate that there is a good deal of fascinating quality music lies hidden in the Greek repertoire.
