AENAON string quartet – ATHENS STATE ORCHESTRA
Four distinguished musicians of the Athens State Orchestra re-create through the wide repertoire written for the string quartet. Using the counterpoint writing, they highlight pluralism, develop the potential of each instrument, with the ultimate goal of unity led by the vision of the composer, as they perceive it.
The AENAON string quartet participates in the Gyzi Megaron Festival in breathtaking Santorini with a diverse program for all preferences. F.Schubert’s unfinished yet profoundly emotional Quartettsatz and S. Barber’s Adagio, precede the Dodecanese Suite by Yannis Konstantinidis and the poetically romantic 2nd quartet by A.Borodin.
AENAON String Quartet was created in 2016. Although newly established, it has participated in educational programs of the Athens State Orchestra, in concerts in Greece and abroad, as well as collaborations with non-classical musicians.
