Attika - Musica Poetica
Athens, Greece — Musica Poetica is the title of the first release from Greece's ATTIKA Plucked String Orchestra.
Musica Poetica is dedicated to the famous Greek poet Nikiforos Vrettakos. The recording reflects samples of Vrettakos poets (in Greek and English/American) between the music of J. Bach, A. Vivaldi, H. Purcell, F. Mendelssohn, N. Mantzaros (arranged by Victor Kioulaphides), J. Offenbach, P. Tchaikovsky and C. Galanti.
Founded in 1993 by Aris Dimitriadis, its Artistic Director. Since 1997 it operates under the hospices of the non-profit Music Association ERATO.
ATTIKA's main objective is to expand the appeal of mandolin music internationally. With a well researched repertoire, ATTIKA is following on the steps of the great Italian and French orchestras of this genre, drawing also on Greek compositions of 18th to 21st century. ATTIKA is the only Greek orchestra interpreting music that covers the entire spectrum of the last five centuries; from the Renaissance to the Italian Canzonetta, from Baroque to Romanticism, from Classical to Modern.
