Tribute to Manolis Kalomiris at the Greek National Opera

Don’t miss the concert tribute to Manolis Kalomiris’ operatic work hosted at the Greek National Opera on March 24, 2013.

Of Samian descent, the composer Manolis Kalomiris (1883-1962) was born in Smyrna, where he received his first music lessons, which he later continued in Athens and Constantinople. At the Vienna Conservatory he studied piano, theory and composition.

Considered to be the founder of the Greek National School of Music, Kalomiris drew his inspiration from Greek tradition and songs as well as from the poetry and literature of his time. He composed over 220 works, including five operas, three symphonies, symphonic poems, a piano concerto, a concertino for violin, cycles of songs for voice and orchestra and for voice and piano, works for piano, chamber music, choral works, as well as works for children (choral, works for piano). His operas have repeatedly been presented by the Greek National Opera.

The concert is held as part of events marking the anniversary of Manolis Kalomiris’ death 50 years ago.
