technopolis20

The first concert of Technopolis 20 Classics concert series for the new season comes on September 1 at 8pm at Markideio Theatre with Victoria and Eleni Mavromoustaki, two virtuoso Cypriot musicians. Both Mavromoustaki sisters have won major competition prizes and have performed and broadcast internationally, and are coming to Cyprus from London for one concert only in Paphos.

Victoria began studying violin at the age of three and made her début recital at the age of seven in a concert series featuring music by Mozart. She was an RCM scholar, and received many awards including the MBF Myra Hess award, the Kit and John Gander Award and the Joan Weller Award. Eleni’s successes include prizes at the Maria Callas Grand Prix in Athens, Mozart International Competition Salzburg, the EU Piano Competition in Prague, the Royal Overseas League Competition, the Patras International Piano competition and the George Themis Pan-Hellenic Piano Competition.

On September 1, the sister duo will present pieces by Johannes Brahms, most specifically his Violin and Piano Sonata, Op. 78 in G major, Mozart’s The Variations on Duport’s Minuet, K. 573 for solo piano and Franz Schubert’s Fantasie in C major D 934.
