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.

How does a little girl from Skokie, Illinois find herself in historical Athens, leading curious explorers through the winding streets of Plaka, down "pezodromos" to hidden ouzeries for tempting mezedhes and homemade barrel wine? The journey began more than twenty years ago, and regardless of whether the wanderlust comes from the spiritual and culture DNA flowing through my veins, or the alignment of the stars on that cold mid-December day this Sagitterian came into the world, I never seem to tire of exploring my adopted homeland of Greece. Here you'll join me as I explore Athens: be it the back streets of Psirri and Gazi, or through the National Gardens and Zappeio where a family of turtles makes their home, or down wide, treelined Imittou Street in Pagrati, which pulses with Athenian life 24 hours a day. And while Athens has stolen my heart, the rest of Greece vies for my curiousity and wanderlust. My two guys (that'd be the Greek God, Vasilis and our Greek dog, Scruffy) and I can often be found settling in for a long weekend in some charming mountain village, or a quaint fishing port on a nearby island, or learning how Greek vitners are producing wines that rival some of Napa Valley's finests productions, or celebrating a panayeri in Epirus or sharing in the festivities as a family of Cretan sheepherders come together to sheer their 1500 sheep in the spring ... And if you happen to find yourself heading to Athens, consider finding yourself a real home for your stay. Living amongst the locals, be it for 3 nights or 3 weeks, will offer you the chance to experience true Athens, beyond the Acropolis. Choose from one of our 5 beautiful penthouse and historical homes, and who knows, I may be leading you down that winding "pezodromo" to our favorite hidden ouzerie!
