It was with a majestic work of music, inseparably linked with the breathtaking panoramic images of Athens and the Saronic Gulf at sunset, and inspired by Kiki Dimoula’s poem “A Lady Suspended”, that Dimitris Kamarotos responded to the Stavros Niarchos Foundation Cultural Center’s (SNFCC) invitation to compose and perform a piece for its inaugural concert at the Energy Canopy, the SNFCC’s highest point.
A profound and enthralling musical and performative meditation upon the relationship between Nature and Culture, Man as part of Nature and as Master of Nature, and the place that Art, and especially Music, occupies in the current urban landscape and soundscape.
Joining Dimitris Kamarotos was mezzo-soprano Anna Pangalou, who performed the work with an impressive technique, while unfailingly remaining musically true to its essence.
The performance took place on Saturday, May 16th, during dawn, and was supported by the SNF.
