Description

Two hundred years ago, in 1821, Greeks rose in revolt against the mighty Ottoman Empire, which had dominated their land for centuries. The Revolution of 1821 led to the establishment of an independent, internationally recognised Greek kingdom in 1832. 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 Greek War of Independence, we bring you 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 international artist Dimitris Basis, together with a Greek band and a symphony orchestra, under the direction of conductor George Ellis.
