UNDER THE LANTERN: A play of light between the Orient and the Occident: 2018-2020

Thank you all beautiful musicians for sharing with me the magical experience under the lantern of our longings, our diversity and our passion for collective sound.

"This very special concert cycle, planned for two years, points out with its subtitle alone "A musical play of light between Orient and Occident" that it is not about demarcation, but about encounter, not about cheap prejudices or xenophobia, but about curiosity, interest in the other, in the others.  
Through the language of music, in musical discourse, the participants seek the connecting, the unifying. And for this initiative, Andreas Paragioudakis and all those who accompany him on this musical journey simply deserve a very big and sincere thank you. We can and should all learn from this"
