European Music Day will be extra special this year as the popular institution celebrates its 20th anniversary. Here in Greece, 48 towns, cities and other locations will be hosting more than 400 artists from different parts of the world - from full orchestras to small ensembles, solo artists and DJs - at 270 venues, from June 21 to 23.
Virtuoso violinist Giorgos Demertzis, acclaimed pianist Vassilis Varvaresos and the Athens Philharmonic, conducted by Byron Fidetzis, will perform two pieces by Nikos Skalkottas that had been thought lost up until about five years and which he first presented in Berlin in 1930: Suite for piano and small orchestra and his Concerto for violin, piano and orchestra.
Violinist Giorgos Demertzis and pianist Vassilis Varvaresos perform works by Greek composer Nikos Skalkottas at the Athens Concert Hall on Wednesday, November 23. The concert is set to start at 8.30 p.m. Prior to the concert Demertzis will provide a brief introduction to the evening's program. Admission ranges from 10 to 15 euros (4 euros reduced).
