"Abendmusik"... by 3

(Three Christmas Concerts)

Friday 19th, Saturday 20th & Monday 22nd December, at 20:30 (pm)

Historical Venue of St Paul’s Anglican Church

Christmas tradition of the 17th century, which started at St Mary’s church at Lübeck town, and was established by organist and composer Dieterich Buxtehude, is revived this year at the historical venue of St Paul’s Anglican Church at Syntagma. Back in the day, five Sundays before Christmas, the Church opened its gates in the evening and invited people to chant, pray, sing, be emotionally affected, rejoice, forgive, love again, prepare for the Christmas celebration. A similar atmosphere will be created this time, in the three evening Christmas concerts, which will take place on Friday 19th, Saturday 20th and Monday 22nd December, a little before and a little after the longest night of the year…

"Searching the meaning of spirituality"

Soprano Maira Milolidaki and countertenor Nikos Spanatis perform for two concerts the masterpieces of western religious music of 18th century Stabat Mater by Pergolesi, Stabat Mater by Vivaldi and the mystagogue play by Dimitris Maragkopoulos Nel fiore del mio terzo Aprile in poetry by Dionisios Solomos.

The Islamic identity of the space, the secular poetry of Solomos in Maragkopoulos play and the Christian lamentation of the Virgin in Pergolesi, indicate, in a unique way, the universal dimension of spirituality.

Parnassos Concert Hall
Georg Frederic Händel
  "Vespro per la Madonna del Carmelo"

Lito Messini (Soprano) | Evita Chioti (Soprano)
Nikos Spanatis (Countertenor)
Konstantinos Zambounis (Tenor) | Vassilis Assimakopoulos (Bass)

Vocal Ensemble Eklispis and Chamber Orchestra NuovArte under the musical direction of Matthew Legaki.

On Thursday, June 2, at the historic hall Parnassus, three projects will be presented for the first time in Greece (Dixit Dominus, Nisi Dominus & Laudate pueri Dominum) for quintet choir, 2 oboes (only in the 3rd work ) and soloists, that GF Händel composed in Rome in 1707 , just 22 years old , based on the Psalms 109 , 126 & 112  about the battalion of the monastery of Karmelitisson.  Despite his young age, Händel with these projects shows great compositional maturity and complete assimilation of the early Italian Baroque which dominated the musical reality of the 18th century.  These projects remain unknown to this day in the Greek public due to the extremely complex choral writing, which tests the skills of the musicians, but also to the very demanding coordination with orchestra.

Jane Morris-Maria Stillman Spartali: Fatal muses Prorafailiton of Painters
27 March 2014

Magda Mavrogianni, idea - text – narrative
Maira Milolidaki, soprano
Nikos Spanatis, counter-tenor
Titos Gouvelis, piano

Jane Morris and Maria Stillman Spartali were the muses who inspired the Pre-Raphaelite painters. The Pre-Raphailite painters, believed that beauty is a form of intelligent and perhaps more superior because it is not necessary to be explained. Jane Morris will be performed by the actress Magda Mavrogianni and the Greek Maria Stillman Spartali will be performed by the soprano Maira Milolidaki. The gentle voice of countertenor's Nikos Spanatis will convey to us the spirit and aesthetics of the Pre-Raphailite painters and the pianistic virtuosity of Titos Gouvelis will merge theater and music.

Time: 20:30
