From dawn to dawn: A trip in the course of the day
27 May 2023
Olympia City Music Theatre Maria Callas
Akadimias 59, Athens
The City of Athens Symphony Orchestra showcases music with vivid imagination through works that celebrate the hours of the day. From the lightly melodic “Morning Song” by Edward Elgar, to the idle “Prelude to the Afternoon of a Fawn” by Claude Debussy and the tempestuous and dark “Night on Bald Mountain” by Modest Mussorgsky, the concert explores shifts of sunlight and mood through evocative music of favorite Romantic and Impressionist composers.
The pianist Nefeli Mousoura will perform the solo in the impressive “Nights in the Gardens of Spain” by Manuel de Fallaand Vladimiros Symeonidis will be directing from the podium.
