(b 1967 )

The Greek composer Ekaterini Karamessini had her musical training in England and in the United States, where her music has received performances. Her compositions include three operas, chamber music, choral works, ballets and songs.

Orchestral Music

Karamessini’s Song of Dionysus: Concerto for Saxophone and Orchestra is inspired by the ancient Greek myth of the god Dionysus, and the contrasting Apollonian spirit. In the concerto, written for Theodoros Kerkezos, the solo saxophone becomes a symbol of the transfiguration of the mythical protagonist.
