Four artists from Cyprus and Turkey will join hands in a musical journey through works of Greek, Cypriot, Turkish and Russian composers, demonstrating that the power of music is stronger than their differences.

Manolis Neophytou on the piano, Orfeas Hiratos on the clarinet, Canan Kocaay Camurtas on the piano and Ayse Karaoglan on the violin will give a joint concert that unites cultures. Music has always been known to unite people no matter their background or political beliefs and this exactly what the concert on October 16 at Pallas Theatre aims to do. Similarities and common musical elements will be celebrated, highlighted and shared, creating a meeting between two cultures.

The four artists are going to present music from the Greek movie Politiki Kouzina, works by Mikis Theodorakis, Manos Hadjidakis, Stamatis Spanoudakis, Kostas Kakoyiannis, George Karvellos, Michalis Andronikou, the 2nd suite for two pianos by Sergei Rachmaninoff, the waltz no2 by Dmitrii Schostakovitch, Ballades by the great Turkish pianist and composer Fazil Say and other works.

The same concert will be repeated on October 17 at Limassol’s Pattihio Theatre.
