Greetings from Greece - CySO Evening Concerts

Last season the CySO conveyed to us regards from Vienna, and this season it brings us regards from Greece with award-winning saxophonist Theodore Kerkezos, twice-proposed by the Naxos label in the 50th Grammy Awards, and described by “Gramophone” magazine as “One of the most astounding performers of the day.” And even though we are transported to landscapes and rhythms of Greece through the music of Konstantinos Grigoriou, Nikos Skalkottas and Mikis Theodorakis, we also venture into saxophone music from Russia and Spain, with Alexander Glazunov and Pedro Itturalde respectively.

Grigoriou: Symphonic poem Lake of Mist
Glazunov: Concerto in E flat major for alto saxophone and string orchestra, op. 109
Skalkottas: Five Greek Dances for string orchestra
Theodorakis: Greek concerto for alto saxophone and orchestra (arr.: G. Sambrovalakis)
Iturralde: Pequeña Czarda for alto saxophone and orchestra (orch.: Havier Iturralde, adaptation for the CySO: Th. Kerkezos)

Soloist: Theodore Kerkezos (saxophone)
