One of the most evocative works of the minimalist movement in music is performed in its complete version for the first time in Greece by four acclaimed Greek musicians in a rare music event.
A classically trained pianist, a theater music composer and recognized improvisational artist, an avant garde, experimental and world music electric harp player and a classical and contemporary percussion soloist join forces in a project that challenges musicians and music lovers alike; Canto Ostinato musical composition by Dutch composer Simeon ten Holt.
Written in 1976 for four keyboard instruments, Canto Ostinato is perhaps the most iconic minimalist composition, based on the repetition of simple selections, consisting of 106 music “cells”, most of which can be indefinitely repeated spontaneously, at the performers' will. Each interpretation of this piece is a unique live exploration of the sonic, harmonic and expressive potential of a single, unchanging motif.
Distinguished artists in their respective genres yet coming from diverse music backgrounds, Titos Gouvelis, Thodoris Economou, Maria-Christina Harper and Andreas Farmakis get off the beaten track and team up to offer a unique performance of the celebrated Canto Ostinato.
