Item Number: NX.8579047

The music of George Kontogiorgos generates a mystical soundworld inspired largely by the stories and creatures of Greek mythology. Although primarily tonal, his compositions encompass a broad spectrum of music from minimalism to atonality. Dancing with Centaurs contains melodic elements found in fragments of ancient Hellenic music and traditional songs from Asia Minor, interwoven with the pentatonic scale. Night Walk is redolent of the Hellenic mainland in its structure and freely expressive performance, while the Concertino 'Testosterone' features novel sound effects including saxophone multiphonics.
