Christmas stories for narrator and orchestra

HELLENIC PROJECT: Repertoire Creation Cycle

8 DEC 2018 | 18:00
9 DEC 2018 | 12:00 & 17:00
 
Main Stage
This year, inspired by the Christmas spirit, we are creating two Christmas tales for narrator and orchestra.
Committed to creating new repertoire, HELLENIC PROJECT commissions works for children and the whole family every season. Which is how Dimitris Papadimitriou's “Aesop's Fables” came into being, along with the “8 Tales for Narrator and Orchestra” composed by Achilleas Wastor, Kostis Kritsotakis, Nefeli Liouta, Dimitra Trypani and Tasos Rosopoulos. 

This year, inspired by the Christmas spirit, we are creating two Christmas tales for narrator and orchestra. 
 
The stories by Katerina Schina and Maritiva Grammatikaki and the soundscapes of Kostis Kritsotakis and Tasos Rosopoulos will update the Christmas message into the present. The works, which are scored for an unusual combination of brass, percussion and piano, will be performed by the vibrantly youthful Ventus Ensemble.
