A feast for the eyes and ears

The European Capital of Culture Pafos2017 will present another first on Saturday with the world premiere of the work Re:Mains for multi-pianist and the song cycle Angel Inmenso.

The two premieres are part of a performance which will combine animation by Charalambos Margaritis with contemporary music by Christina Athinodorou from Paphos. Re:Mains will be performed by the pianist Annini Tsiouti and a small chamber ensemble while the soprano Margarita Elia will present Athinodorou’s song collection Angel Inmenso.

Athinodorou studied composition and conducting at the Guildhall School of Music and Drama in London. She then moved to Paris where she continued to study composition. Her music has featured in festivals worldwide by a number of orchestras and ensembles. She is the author of more than 50 compositions to date, which include commissioned pieces, including Re:Mains which was commissioned by Pafos2017.

Margaritis graduated from the National Superior Fine Arts School of Paris in 2012. His work is centered around printmaking, animated films, drawing and painting. In 2010 he studied the traditional icon painting techniques with the monk Paisios Agrapides in the Cell of Saint Archangels in Karyes of Mount Athos, where he resided for three months.

He has taught drawing and animated film techniques to children from eight to 15-years-old and has been part of several exhibitions in Europe, and he has showed-off his talent at the Cyprus Comic Con.

An audiovisual performance combining contemporary music with animation. November 11. Attikon Cinema, Paphos. 8.30pm. €10. Tel: 26-955166
