This unique, extraordinary project involves four young, talented composers, who were commissioned to compose new pieces for the four players of the string quartet, on the basis of using and maintaining almost unaltered the folk-oriented nature of the melodic material of the Cypriot songs and dances, from which they were inspired, such as ‘Psintri Vasilitzia mou’, ‘O Dasonomos’, ‘I Stamna’, ‘O Voskos’ etc. However, they were asked to feel free to explore and combine the charming simplicity of tradition with modern vocabulary, experimental extended performance techniques and the dynamic characteristics of the string quartet, in order to give to the music an individual, distinctive character and a personal aesthetic.

TratSik String Quartet project is made up of George Hadjigeorgiou and Spyros Spyrou on Violin, Nikolas Efthymiou in Viola, Doros Zesimos on Violoncello and Andreas Papapetrou, Andys Skordis, Dimitris Tsoukas and Stavros Choplaros in Composition.

The TratSik String Quartet will “rock the house” with enthusiastic, powerful performances.

Monday, April 16, 2018, 20:00 - 22:00
