Sophia Kyanidou (soprano), Dimitris Paksoglou (tenor), Contratempo Chamber Orchestra conducted by Vladimiros Symeonidis
The Sani Festival has embraced classical music, having become a perfect backdrop for repertory opera. And so, this year on Sani Hill there will be featured famous arias and duets, with the unique soprano Sophia Kyanidou in the role of ‘Her’ and the talented tenor Dimitris Paksoglou in the role of ‘Him’. These are two Greek artists whose careers and artistic presence have taken off on the international scene. The duet is accompanied by the chamber orchestra ContraTempo, a singular musical partnership from Thessaloniki, formed in 2012 on the initiative of conductor Vladimiros Symeonidis, and under the aegis of the State Conservatory of Thessaloniki. Before the Hill’s tower, under the August moon, young musicians will be giving a fresh and ground-breaking take on the opera’s classic repertory.
