Young Composers and Performers (IV)

The Athens State Orchestra audience will have the chance to enjoy two monumental works of an intensely ‘national hue’ by the Hungarian composer, ethnomusicologist and educator, Zoltán Kodály, conducted by Byron Fidetzis. These will be preceded by a new work by Savvas Tsiligiridis and the sonic fireworks of Franz Liszt’s Second Piano Concerto performed by the young soloist, Stella Koukou.
