Treasures known and unknown IV

With the generous support of the Japanese Embassy in Athens

Every new appearance of the multifaceted Christoph Poppen on the Athens State Orchestra podium is much-anticipated, and with good reason. We are grateful to the maestro for all he has done for the Orchestra. This year, he will be pouring his vast knowledge and impressive abilities into performing three 19th-century works which reveal different, but equally attractive, aspects of Romanticism. The young rising star of the violin Ryu Goto will be joining the Orchestra for the performance of Paganini’s extremely demanding Concerto.
