David Geringas

Opening concert – Skalkottas and his contemporaries I

Taking Skalkottas' apprenticeship under Schoenberg as its starting point, this year's thematic cycle "Skalkottas and his contemporaries" sheds light on the Greek composer's invaluable oeuvre in tandem with compositions by his contemporaries. In this spirit, our Orchestra's Artistic Director, Stefanos Tsialis, has coupled Skalkottas' Classical Symphony with Webern's expressionistically dramatic Passacaglia for this first outing of the series. This season's opening concert is rendered more glorious still by the participation of the legendary David Geringas in a performance of the quintessential Romantic cello concerto.
