LMS invites you to an evening of Art-songs and piano music with the renowned Cypriot artists Marios Andreou (voice) and Nicolas Costantinou (piano). A musical excursion that begins from faraway Russia and four sentimental songs by the late romantic composer Piotr Ilyich Tchaikovsky. Subsequently, our journey takes us to Bulgaria and to Pancho Vladigerov, whose compositions combine the idiom of folk music with that of the western classical style. Thenceforth, we descend to Cyprus, the southern tip of Europe, where our audience will have the opportunity to enjoy the music of Constantinos Stylianou, first, four of his songs written to poetry by Dina Katsouri and Vassilis Koumis, and subsequently, five of his preludes for solo piano, taken from the First Series of Twelve Preludes inspired by works of art. No. 1 is inspired by the statue The Victory of Samothrace, no. 3 by Paul Cézanne’s painting, L’Étang des sœurs, no. 5 by Robert Campin painting “The Weeping Angel”, from the Seilern Triptych, no. 7 by Alberto Giacometti’s statuette The Walking Man by Paula Rego’s painting The Dance. Our musical outing ends in the heart of Europe, with Czech composer Antonín Dvořák’s celebrated song cycle Gypsy Melodies, which portrays the life and culture of this nomadic tribe, so familiar in the Balkan region in general.
