Tsitsanis, Hatzidakis, Xarchakos, Theodorakis

Concert or Performance

14 May 2021 Once Only Event

Two hundred years ago, in the northern spring of 1821, Greeks rose in revolt against the mighty Ottoman Empire, which had dominated their land for centuries. After many vicissitudes the Revolution of 1821 led to the establishment of an independent, internationally recognised Greek kingdom in 1832.

Nonetheless, the struggles of Greek men and women for the liberation of occupied territory, and for democracy in their own country, continued intermittently and reached a new climax in the period of military dictatorship (1967-74). Always, from before the Revolution to the present day, music and song have inspired Greek people to struggle for a better world and to honour those who have given their lives for the cause.

To mark the 200th anniversary of the beginning of the War of Independence, we are presenting a concert with songs of revolution, liberation and empowerment created over several decades by four great composers of the twentieth and twenty-first centuries: Vassilis Tsitsanis, Manos Hatzidakis, Stavros Xarchakos and Mikis Theodorakis.

The concert will feature, as soloist, international artist Dimitris Basis, together with a Greek band, a symphony orchestra and a choir, under the direction of conductor George Ellis.
