Mercouri / Xenakis

15-17 January 2016

 

National Forum of Music / Narodowe Forum Muzyki, Audiovisual Technology Center / Centrum Technologii Audiowizualnych CeTA

The three-day Mercouri/Xenakis projectis an event organised by the Avant Art foundation, celebrating the Opening Weekend of the European Capital of Culture Wrocław 2016. The project includes concerts, an exhibition and a spectacle. The events, presented from 15 to 17 January will be dedicated to the work of Iannis Xenakis, one of the most prominent composers of contemporary music worldwide, and Melina Mercouri, a Greek actress and originator of the very idea of the European Capital of Culture.

The programme of the classical music concert planned for 15 January 2016 in the National Forum of Music / Narodowe Forum Muzyki, directed by Ernst Kovacic will be comprised of two compositions by Iannis Xenakis: Ata and Jonchaies. The pieces will be also played on 17 January during the gala concert of the European Capital of Culture Opening Weekend.

The Music of Illustration / Architecture of Sound by the local Phonos ek Mechanes group (Cezary Duchnowski and Paweł Hendrich with guest participation by Kostas Georgakopulos and visualisations prepared by Bartek Szlachcic) is an electroacoustic project, for which the most characteristic attributes of Xenakis' music were the starting point towards creating their own musical programme. The Karkowski/Xenakis programme will be dedicated to the influence the Greek composer had on the work of Zbigniew Karkowski, a distinguished Polish composer. It will be performed by Anton Lukoszevieze and Kasper Toeplitz. The Rebound A concert will be performed by drummer Leszek Lorent, later joined by Maciej Nerkowski – a baritone – in order to perform the next piece by Xenakis – “Kassandra”. The Insenso performance, directed by Petros Sevastikoglou and produced by the Avant Art Foundation and the Grotowski Institute will feature Alexandra Kazazou. The creators were inspired by Mercouri, an artist responsive towards social issues and genuinely interested in culture and politics. 
An exhibition of photographs related to Melina Mercouri, curated by Katarzyna Gołecka will be on display in the National Forum of Music / Narodowe Forum Muzyki from 15 to 17 January.
