Magnus Eroticus: Love, Poetry and Music

Nov 30, 2009

A lecture in English by the conductor and musicologist Christos Mitsakis and a concert with works by Manos Hatzidakis, Astor Piazzola, Kurt Weil, Nikos Kypourgos, Lena Platonos, K. Giannidis, Maria Thoidou...

Konstantinos Raptis

On the occasion of Magnus Eroticus, Christos Mitsakis delivers a lecture on music as a means of expression and stimulation of sexual desire. Over time Magnus Eroticus has evolved into a cycle of songs – a reference point to Hatzidakis' artwork. Magnus Eroticus is often presented in parts but also as a whole and was recorded in different versions. Maria Thoidou (vocals) and Konstantinos Raptis (bayan accordion) present an unexpected ″transcription″ in search of the secret bonds with love songs by composers who, at one time or another, were connected to Manos Hatzidakis.

The event has been organized in cooperation with the Greek Composers' Union and the Hellenic American University.
