The Thessaloniki State Symphony Orchestra is featured in the 2020 Athens & Epidaurus Festival with the remarkable Swedish violinist Daniel Lozakovich. The 19-year-old virtuoso has met with widespread acclaim around the world thanks to his unparalleled skill, his balanced playing style and his clear sound, with music experts regarding him as part of the world elite and comparing him with past legends such as Christian Ferras and Jascha Heifetz.

Lozakovich performs Tchaikovsky’s melodic and highly demanding Violin Concerto, noted for its constantly shifting images and emotions, inspired by a cover of Édouard Lalo’s Symphognie espagnole.

Mikis Theodorakis’ colourful symphonic scherzo The Feast of Assi-Gonia, inspired by the eponymous fair in Chania and rich in Cretan folk motifs, will open the programme. The evening will come to a close with Prokofiev’s famous Symphony No. 5, in which the composer pays tribute to the greatness of the human spirit, celebrating the strong, generous and gentle soul of the free and happy man.

Programme:
- Mikis Theodorakis (1925), The Feast of Assi-Gonia, symphonic scherzo (9΄)
- I. Tchaikovsky (1840-1893), Violin Concerto in D major, Op. 35 (35΄)
