Greek Music Ensemble: Tribute to Mikis Theodorakis

Presented by Berklee College of Music at Berklee Performance Center, Boston MA

Greek Music Ensemble: Tribute to Mikis Theodorakis

This concert will celebrate the life and work of Greek composer Mikis Theodorakis (1925-2021), a prominent figures of Greek art music who successfully married poetry with music for more than 50 years

Much of the poetry used in his music comes from the work of Nobel laureates Odysseas Elytis and Giorgos Seferis as well as other highly esteemed Greek poets of the 20th century.

Mikis wrote music that carried the feelings, hopes, aspirations, and troubles of an entire generation in a small country that had just gone through World War II, a civil war, and a dictatorship. In those dark times, his artful musical creations were not simply an escape, they embodied the yearning of an entire people.
