Μ. THEODORAKIS: Oedipus Tyrannus
Concerto for piano no. 1
Α. BALTAS: “Where shall I find my soul…”
Suite on melodies by M. Theodorakis
In this concert, the Cyprus Symphony Orchestra presents the
more academic or serious side of Mikis Theodorakis through two
of his own works as well as a Suite written by maestro Baltas
based on melodies penned by this great Greek composer. The
story of Oedipus Rex concerned Theodorakis not once but twice,
with his signature on two manuscripts deriving their subject matter
and title from Sophocles’ tragedy of the same title. The first work,
presented in this concert, was initially written in 1948, with the
composer using material from two previous works of his own: the
Sextet and the third part of his Symphony in three parts. Ten years
later, in 1958, he reviewed the musical text, with the result being
that with which we’re familiar with today. It was during that same
period (1957-58) that Theodorakis wrote his Concerto for piano no.
1, while maestro Baltas’ Suite wraps up the concert with some of
the composer’s well-known melodies.
