Resonances 

CINE ELEUSIS

A concert with 21st-century works for two pianos, by pianists Lydia Linardou and Hero Menegou. A journey through the imaginary musical cities of contrasts. Among them a new commission, a new arrangement of a concerto, an arrangement from a piece á quatre mains, musical theatre, movement and speech. A journey through the mature language of the composers, through the eyes of the newly formed duo. Starting from the city of Andria in Italo Calvino’s book Invisible Cities, the performers trace the connection between the works and some of the author’s special cities.

Performing Arts Initiator – Narrative Archaeology

Seat reservation from 11 March here.
