'Mythical Moves' by Athens State Orchestra

08 March 2024Source: Megaron Athens Concert Hall

German musical romanticism often draws its themes from the realm of myth, bringing to Apollonian narratives and images the Dionysian dimension of a music charged with the strongest emotions.

In tonight’s concert, we will enjoy three milestones of the romantic movement, conducted by the artistic director of the Athens State Orchestra, Lucas Karytinos, with the solistic assistance of leading American baritone Thomas Hampson. They are joined by two of the finest ASO musicians, who will unfold their talent interpreting the two main heroes of Cervantes’ masterpiece, the visionary Don Quixote and his faithful servant Sancho Panza.

 Program :

Richard Wagner: Death of Isolde, from the opera Tristan und Isolde

Gustav Mahler: Des Knaben Wunderhorn (The Boy’s Magic Horn), song cycle (selection)

Richard Strauss: Don Quixote, symphonic poem for cello, viola and orchestra, Opus 35
