Description: Jón Leifs, quartet no. ΙΙΙ, El Greco (1965)
Filippos Tsalachouris, quartet no.ΙΙΙ, op. 53, El Greco, (2005)
In an imaginative performance, with projections and lighting effects, the New Hellenic Quartet will present two contemporary quartets inspired by Domenico Theotokopoulos’ work. The simultaneous video art projection enhances the music by adding a totally different dimension, whis is loyal, though, to the composers’ conception, as both give indications relating to the matching of their music with specific paintings. A legendary painter, two composers, from Greece and Iceland, a quartet accompanying images, and images based on the quartet’s sound create a unique experience.
The New Hellenic Quartet is regarded today as one of the most prominent chamber music groups in Greece. Classsical works and the rich greek musical creation are both an integral part of the Quartet’s repertoire. The New Hellenic Quartet has presented many works in various festivals and international artistic meetings, and has also produced recordings that are considered to be landmarks of discography.
