Classical music melodies will soon sound at the Patticheio Municipal Theatre of Limassol as the Limassol Municipal Symphony Orchestra presents a special concert. An ensemble of musicians will pay tribute to Cypriot pianist and composer Nicolas Economou with their concert In Memoriam on April 8.

Under the musical and artistic direction of Francis Nectarios Guy, the orchestra will perform the masterful First Symphony in C major, opus 21 and four pieces from Economou’s 16 piano children etudes titled Childhood Whims, which have been orchestrated by Alkis Baltas and will form the overture to the concert commemorating the 30th anniversary since the passing of the great Cypriot musician.

The Violin Concerto in E minor, op. 64, by Felix Mendelssohn, one of the most beautiful works of the romantic repertoire, will also be performed by renowned Limassolian violinist Victoria Mavromoustaki. Victoria has been living permanently in London since the age of 15, first as a scholar at The Purcell School for Young Musicians, then as a student at The Royal School of Music and now as a professional musician. Now, she will return to her hometown to join fellow musicians in honouring the memory of Economou.
