Rehearsing Jani Christou – An open Rehearsal with dissonArt ensemble


[greek text follows]

CML A.U.Th. in colaboration with dissonArt ensemble presents an open rehearsal of Jani Christou’s works Anaparastasis III (The Pianist) and The Strychnine Lady.

Friday June 17th 14:30 – 17:30 Foyer – A.U.Th – Music Department (Thermi)

Jani Christou composed his legendary works Anaparastasis III and The Strychnine Lady between 1967 and 1968. In these works, new and innovative forms of expression are explored. The pieces, scored for ensemble and soloists, transform the roles and functionality of musicians and soloists. Using his own pioneering notation, Christou is extending and at the same time blurring the borders between music and theater.

The event will start with a short talk by the conductor Vladimiros Symeonidis and dissonArt member Theodoros Patsalidis introduced by the composer Zesses Seglias.

After the end of the rehearsal there will be an open discussion.

Anaparastasis III along with The Strychnine Lady will be staged at the GNO Alternative Stage of the Stavros Niarchos Foundation Cultural Center in 25 June, under the direction of Alexandros Efklidis. [read more here] Continue reading
