The two institutions have come together, doing away with the physical distance between them to share their common interest in culture in general and contemporary music in particular. These concerts are the result of a collaboration between OCC-selected musicians —most of them young and up-and-coming— and students studying “Culture and Cultural Management” in Panteion’s Department of Communication, Media and Culture.
The musicians and students formed into small groups which were charged with organizing and promoting both the cycle as a whole and each individual concert. The OCC is providing the working groups with advice, know-how and networking, while the project is supervised by both institutions.
Our culture is overwhelmingly visual, and a few hours spent listening to contemporary music can reveal just how surprising the sound of today can be. In these concerts, key works of the 20th and 21st centuries interact with works by Greek composers. A number of the works to be performed will be receiving their Greek premières or were commissioned especially for the cycle.
The concerts will feature compositions by: Michael Amann, George Crumb, Mario Davidovsky, Morton Feldman, Henrik Hellstenius, Rudolph Jungwirth, Karlheinz Stockhausen, Jacob ter Veldhuis, Claude Vivier, George Aperghis, Nikos Ioakeim, Yannis Ioannidis, Orestis Karamanlis, Evangelia Kikou, Panayiotis Kokoras, Dimitris Maronidis, Dimitris Economou, Michalis Paraskakis and Christos Samaras.
