Johannes Brahms

The free man

With the kind support of the Embassy of the Czech Republic in Athens

Anyone who fell in love with Richard Bach's novel Jonathan Livingston Seagull would be well advised to listen to the new work by Christos Papageorgiou which was inspired by it. Another free and revolutionary hero of world literature, Nietzsche's Zarathustra, provided the imaginative spark Richard Strauss needed to compose one of the most important symphonic works of Late Romanticism. The former artistic director of the ASO, Vasilis Christopoulos, returns to the podium to conduct the rapidly up-and-coming Czech violinist Jan Mráček in Brahms' Concerto.
