> DESCRIPTION
Pianist Victoria Kirsch and pianist/vocalist Dr. Anatolia Ioannides present a concert of music by some of the most prominent modern Greek and Cypriot composers, whose music is an indispensable part of the region’s recent turbulent history and whose compositions have helped to define the cultural identity of the people who live there. A special segment will be dedicated to the rich cultural heritage of Cyprus as revealed through its folk music idiom, with the participation of traditional instrumentalists and with songs especially arranged for the event. The program will include songs by M. Theodorakis, M. Hatzidakis, D. Lagios, M. Loizos, St. Xarchakos, G. Markopoulos, M. Tokas, St. Kougioumtzis and traditional folk music and will be juxtaposed to the artwork featured in the USC Fisher Gallery exhibition A Roving Eye on Cyprus: Selections from the Bandler Collection.

A Q&A period will follow the performance, featuring a discussion of the musical works presented and their connection to the artwork on display, as well as the opportunity for audience members to learn about the performers’ artistic lives during their stay at USC and since leaving he campus community.
