ATHENS PHILHARMONIA ORCHESTRA
The Athens Philharmonia Orchestra (APhO) was founded in November 2016. Its constitutional aim is to contribute to discovering, studying, restoring, reviving, performing and recording music works of modern Greek art music. A significant part of the works performed by the orchestra has been discovered and edited through important scholarly research, which takes place in musicology departments of Greek universities. The orchestra’s concerts always include works by Greek composers as well as international repertoire. Many of the works performed by the orchestra are world premieres, and their discography includes numerous world premiere recordings.
The orchestra’s chairman is Dr Nikos Maliaras, professor of musicology and director of the Laboratory for the Study of Modern Greek Art Music at the University of Athens. The orchestra’s artistic director is Byron Fidetzis, who is widely renowned for his research into Greek music.
