The violin and lute take centre stage

Just because the European Capital of Culture Pafos2017 has come to an end, it doesn’t mean that Paphos has run out of cultural tricks.

There will still be lots of music in the air, plays to be performed, art to be seen and wining and dining to be done. The establishments are many, and the entertainment diverse, but the Technopolis 20 Cultural Centre is where we can always find a cultural event to keep us happy. The first of the year will be a violin and lute performance by Andreas P. Nicolaou (violin) and Marios E. Charalambous (lute) on Wednesday at 8pm.

The violin and lute will come together to present a programme with works for solo violin by Telemann, Prokofiev and Bach and arrangements of Cyprus songs for solo violin and for violin and lute.

Nicolaou is a graduate of the Conservatory and Music Academy of Prague. He has given many concerts and broadcasts in Cyprus, as well as in the Czech Republic, Germany, UK, Israel, France and Greece.

Charalambous studied music, particularly violin, at the State Academy of Music in Sofia. He has been working as a violin teacher since 2010 and has participated in several music groups, both traditional and classical.
