Abstract

"The Hymn to Liberty by Dionysios Solomos, in a rare musical version composed by Nikolaos Chalikiopoulos-Mantzaros, is presented for the first time by MEIZON male vocal ensemble on the occasion of the National Anniversary on March 25. With this major online concert, Megaron – The Athens Concert Hall offers to all Greeks around the world and to all foreign lovers of Greek culture, an opportunity to meet and musically celebrate, this defining event of Modern Greek History. Agathangelos Georgakatos will conduct, and Stathis Soulis will play the piano accompaniment. The “polyphonic” setting to music of the Hymn by Nikolaos Mantzaros, which MEIZON Ensemble will be performing, was studied and scientifically restored by Doctor of Musicology Kostas Zervopoulos. Iconic paintings by 19th century Greek painters, whose palette exalted the struggle for national regeneration, are also used to enrich the video of the broadcast. The paintings to be shown have been created by Theodoros Vryzakis, Angelos Giallinas, Nikolaos Gyzis, Georgios Margaritis and Dionysios Tsokos.
