100 Jahre Xenakis

Klavierkonzert, Vortrag und Lesung rund um Iannis Xenakis

This year we celebrate the centenary of the birth of the great artist Iannis Xenakis: composer, architect and engineer - his work is always characterized by an unspeakable energy.
Iannis Xenakis was born on May 29, 1922 in Brăila, Romania, to a Greek family, and died on February 4, 2001 in Paris. His Romanian, French and Greek roots lead to an EUNIC event organized by the Institut français de Berlin, the Greek Cultural Foundation and the Romanian Cultural Institute Berlin.
The piano soloist Ermis Theodorakis impresses his audiences due to his two talents: his exceptional musical memory and the rapid comprehension of complex musical forms, which he interprets with accuracy and clarity, easily, fluently and thus accessible even for audiences who are not familiar with contemporary music.
In 1997, when he was 18 years old, composer Iannis Xenakis wrote that he considered the young pianist as an ideal interpreter of his works. So we as well decided that Ermis Theodorakis should musically interpret our "100 Years of Xenakis" evening. In addition to an approximately 50-minute piano concert, Theodorakis will give a lecture on the life of Iannis Xenakis and his piano works. This lecture will be followed by an excerpt from one of the works of Panait Istrati, a great Romanian author who shares his birthplace Brăila with Iannis Xenakis.
