Serghei Prokofiev, circa 1927

Revolutions and Revolts I

The upcoming celebration of the bicentenary of the Greek Revolution provides the inspiration for this season’s thematic cycle “Revolutions and Revolts”. The cycle will explore various aspects of the revolutionary condition and how these impact on, and are spread through, musical works. The heroic struggle of the Greek people provided the inspiration for Rossini's opera The siege of Corinth. Then, Prokofiev’s Third Concerto is also ‘revolutionary’ in the way it pushes pianistic virtuosity to its limits. For its performance, the dynamic pianist Theodosia Ntokou joins forces with the Athens State Orchestra under the baton of the experienced Italian conductor, Pier Carlo Orizio.
