CSO: Musical stories and Solon Michaelides

The Cyprus Symphony Orchestra proposes an appealing programme consisting of two works by Solon Michaelides and romantic works that integrate or support a story. Robust in their emotional breadth, Michaelides’ In Memoriam and Suite Archaïque carry a familiar melodic and harmonic content, as the composer’s aesthetic is imbued with the musical heritage of Byzantine and Cypriot traditional music. The works by Delibes, Mendelssohn and Kodály will indulge your imagination with tasteful musical stories about a king, a water nymph (The fair Melusine), and evocations of summer nights, brought to life through a kaleidoscope of captivating melodies and pulsating orchestral colours.
