Aegean Festival Overture

Andreas Makris

 

Aegean Festival Overture was written in 1967 for the Washington National Symphony. The driving energy of the fast section with its restless 5’s and 7’s and the lyric plaintiveness of the contrasting middle section, all molded into a symphonic form, epitomize the musical style of composer Andreas Makris - a blend of classic form and Greek folkloristic elements.

Andreas Makris (1930 - 2005) was born in Salonika, Greece and came to the U.S. at the age of 20. He was a violinist and Composer-in-Residence for many years at the National Symphony Orchestra in Washington DC. He composed around 100 works for orchestra, chamber ensembles and solo instruments.
