MORNING CONCERTS AT THE MUSEUM Schedule:

Baritone: Kostas Raphailidis
Piano: Frixos Mortzos
“Under the sound’s sweet shade”
The three artists perform, through the track of chamber music, one of the most charming and highly regarded conversational paradigms, that of solo voice accompanied by flute and piano. They have selected works of known and unknown composers of the 19th and 20th century (Saint-Saëns, Hossein, Samaras, Brandts-Buys, Jacob, Barber, Mortari, Ravel, Kalomoiris, Rutter, Martin) revealing the beauty and melodious match of these particular aspects of sound as much as compositional lavishness.
Soprano: Peny Deligianni
Piano: Konstantina Polychronopoulou
Flute: Nikos Nikolopoulos
“Through a Kaleidoscope”
A musical wandering through the centuries, for flute and piano. In this journey we attend a lyrical kaleidoscope of the diachronic itinerary of chamber music for flute and piano, right across the 17th to the 21st century, with original works by S. Sciarrino, F. Schubert, J. Andersen, a transcription of no. 5 sonata for violin by Beethoven, along with two works of Greek composers, D. Terzakis and G. Ioannidis.
Flute & Alto flute: Katerina Chents
Piano: Eleni Nikolaidi
The string quartet Arco dell’Arte will present three of the most beautiful baroque era concerts written for the Night of Christmas. Mezzo soprano Marisia Papalexiou will sing four arias from the “Christmas Oratorio” by J.S. Bach.
