Musical Performance: En Chordais: An Evening of Mixed Classical & Contemporary Mediterranean Traditions
Fri, February 28, 2014 8:00 pm at Alwan for the Arts
The ensemble celebrates the Byzantine musical heritage, Greek folk music, the works of major Mediterranean composers, as well as compositions by its members and a creative continuation of this great heritage. Of particular importance in the repertoire is the application of Kyriakos Kalaitzidis' (En Chordais' artistic director) research findings in manuscript codices from the 15th-19th century, which are preserved in several historical libraries of Europe.
