Dimitris Marinos

4:00 PM
Music Analects VI
Sunday, May 18, 2014

Dimitris Marinos presents Music Analects VI “An Odyssey to a Starting Point”. Through the literary meaning of Analects — bringing together excerpts from lengthier works written by different authors — Marinos reevaluates the history of the mandolin through his own experiences, and inspired by Ulysses’ return to homeland, he will demonstrate his voyage to find a starting point. The program will include music by four great Bs of the Music History: Bach (Fuga from the violin Sonata II), Beethoven (Adagio in E flat Major & Sonatina in C Major for mandolin & piano), Bartok (Fuga, from his solo violin Sonata), and Berio (a select of 12 pieces from the Violin Duetti). Additionally the program will include Psappha by Iannis Xenakis, a major figure of the 20th century music, as well as music written for Marinos by Mamangakis, Lapidakis, Kalogeras, Lagios and Lombardo. Dimitris Marinos hails from Zakynthos, Greece and has commissioned nearly 100 new works for mandolin and various instrumentations. Since 2005 he has been working with the development of his concept the “Music Analects”, which premiered that year on September 9 at the historic Teatro Fraschini, in Pavia, Italy, with the participation of artists from Zakynthos in the auspices of the municipality of Zakynthos under Dionisis Gasparos. Until today, this musical concept included other artistic modes as well, such as dance, multimedia, theatre, and literature, which together enabled the unification of a form consisting of different genres of music, such as folk, classical and contemporary, with the mandolin serving in a pivotal role.
