Hommage an El Greco
- with Manolis Anastasakis / guitarist
For the 400th year from the death of Domenikos Theotokopoulos, who became one of the most important and famous artists of the late renaissance under the name "El Greco", the two greek musicians Michael Heupel (cello) and Manolis Anastasakis (guitar) explore their artistic relationship to the great artist of their homeland in a special concert.
The two musicians take on a journey on the Painter's footsteps, by performing works from the three countries he lived in (Greece, Italy and Spain) and presenting works by contemporary greek composers that were created for this project. At the same time paintings by El Greco and texts from the book "Report to Greco" by Nikos Kazantzakis accompany this musical Journey and create dramaturgical and thematic associations.
