In this programme, the Cyprus Symphony Orchestra is joined by the distinguished conductor Michalis Economou, as well as two charismatic soloists, to present works by Vassos Nicolaou, one of the most esteemed composers of his generation, and by the symphonic titan, Gustav Mahler.
Vassos Nicolaou’s exceptional Concerto for percussion and string orchestra will receive its Cyprus premiere featuring soloist Marios Nicolaou, CySO’s principal timpanist. Gustav Mahler’s radiant Symphony no. 4 is lighter than his first three symphonies and one of his most popular ones.
The shining Greek-Scottish soprano Annie Fassea will interpret the evocative song included in the Finale.
