Ancient sounds – Today’s melodies
Despite having been lost for over 1600 years, the idea of the ancient Greek lyre has ran through the European music creation and the music art of the near East. In Chrysea Formix ensemble’s performance Ancient sounds - Today’s music, ancient lyre will be revived through the magical sounds of its chords and will interact, on the one hand, with two classical instruments, a violin and a cello, and on the other hand, with the Greek language, insisting to seek the universe’s harmony in ancient and more recent melodies. The choreography is a signature piece of talented choreographer and dancer Marianna Kavallieratou, in her first collaboration with the GNO.
