Event description
Symphony concert directed by George Ellis

About this Event

Dionysios Solomos wrote his famous Hymn to Liberty in 1823, when the Greek War of Independence was at a critical stage. In its 158 stanzas the poem relates events in the war up to that point. It was set to music by Nikolaos Mantzaros, and in 1865 the first verses were adopted as the Greek National Anthem. This concert will be the first ever presentation of the whole work in Australia. It will be performed by a thirty-piece orchestra, conducted by George Ellis, who also did the musical arrangement, and with soloists Maria Yiakoulis, Tania Nassibian, George Karantonis and Leon Vitogiannis.
