Event Details

Born from the soul of the common man, the simplicity, freshness and vivacity of folk song and dance has been a strong inspiration for classical composers whether through direct use of folk melodies and rhythms or through creating music injected with the spirit of folk music. All four composers in this programme draw from folk music traditions, and yet preserve their distinct musical idiom. Solon Michaelides evokes the peace of the landscape and the luminosity of the dawning sun at the Parthenon, Ravel and Alkis Baltas are inspired by Greek folk song and Dvořák celebrates the peasant spirit and joie de vivre of Bohemia.
