Skalkottas and his contemporaries III
One of Skalkottas' most famous classmates in Arnold Schoenberg's composition group was Alban Berg, whose intricate and atmospheric Violin Concerto will be performed by Tianwa Yan, the Chinese soloist who is now a familiar figure on the Athens concert scene. The concert programme also includes the world première of a symphonic work by the multiple award-winning young composer, Orestes Papaioannou, a tribute to Skalkottas commissioned by the ASO.
