Description

Yorgos Mouloudakis’ recital of the guitar works that inspired the choreographies of the second part of the 5th GNO Online Festival.

The recital features the works:

Manos Hadjidakis, Cretan dance • Who is frenzied with love? • I love you (from the Suite for Guitar)

Nikos Kypourgos, Chase for three • Grasshopper • The pathway home (from the Nine Musical Images for Guitar)

Nikos Mamangakis, Aretousa • Hasapiko dance (from the Encomium for Manos Hadjidakis)

Yorgos Mouloudakis, Strange train • Nocturnal flight (from the suite The Young Man and the Owl) • In the living room (from the cycle Clocks)  • Little blue buggy (from the suite The Young Man and the Owl)

 

It is a selection of guitar works dedicated to Yorgos Mouloudakis by Manos Hadjidakis, Nikos Kypourgos and Nikos Mamangakis, accompanied by four of Yorgos Mouloudakis’ own works. As he notes: “Dance, as perceived by the post-war generation –namely as a celebration and ritual that strengthens community bonds– is the dominant feature here, interrupted only by strands of lyricism. Orchestration in these works draws upon the tradition of polyrhythms that has been absorbed into the urban fabric, the same tradition that gave birth to the Greek urban folk song (rebetiko) and Greek dances. The new performance of the works for the Greek National Opera showcases the balance between the Dionysian and the Apollonian, a balance whose primary nature we recall through the guitar – an instrument of celebration and confession. It is on the solid canvas of this musical material that the choreographies of Maria Kousouni, Eleftheria Stamou, Fotis Diamantopoulos and Tatiana Papadopoulou are built. These choreographies underline, in the parallel world of movement, those elements that we have in common with the true mentality of that generation. Thus, little independent bridges are built between the two centuries, and the question of continuity, of the unbreakable body of expression in our country, arises once again.”
