Chamber and jazz concerts at Technopolis

Technopolis 20 Cultural Centre in Paphos is the centre of attention when it comes to a blend of cultural events. It puts on exhibitions, workshops, plays on occasion and music events, music events above all.  Entertainment Film Review Restaurant & Bar Review Showbiz What's On Home / Entertainment / What's On Chamber and jazz concerts at Technopolis June 5th, 2018 Maria Gregoriou Entertainment, What's On 0 Comments Chamber and jazz concerts at Technopolis a d f h k n q y Technopolis 20 Cultural Centre in Paphos is the centre of attention when it comes to a blend of cultural events. It puts on exhibitions, workshops, plays on occasion and music events, music events above all. This week the cultural centre will continue on its quest to bring some of the best musical performances on the island with a chamber music concert by musicians of the Cyprus Symphony Orchestra (CSO) on Saturday, followed by a jazz concert on Sunday. The chamber music concert, under the name Mozart and the 20th Century, promises to be one of the very best concerts the orchestra has ever been part of. What makes us so sure that it will truly be a concert to remember is that Jens George Bachman – Artistic Director and Chief Conductor of the CSO – will take to the piano while Wolfgang Schroeder will accompany him on violin. These two musicians will bring to life the works of two of the best-known composers of their respective timelines: from the second half of the 18th century and Austria, Wolfgang Amadeus Mozart and from the second half of the 20th and Estonia, Arvo Part. The evening will enchant us with Mozart's Violin sonata in E minor, K. 304 and the Violin sonata in A major, K. 305, while Part's Fratres for violin and piano and Spiegel im Spiegel (Mirror in Mirror) will be played. German-born Bachmann was appointed the Artistic Director and Chief Conductor of the CSO last year. Since then the orchestra's audience attendance has increased largely. He also contributes widely to the music education sector of the island, including projects with the National Youth Symphony Orchestra. Schroeder studied at the Mozarteum University and at the Mannes School of Music in New York. As soloist and chamber player, he has appeared in prestigious venues such as the Philharmonie in Berlin, the Concertgebouw Amsterdam and the Athens Megaron. He has been the concertmaster of the CSO since 2005. On Sunday things will get bigger and start to look a lot more like summer, when the Jazzologia Cyprus Big Band will put on the first performance of the season in the outdoor venue. The Jazzologia Cyprus Big Band is a 19-piece jazz band established in October 2016 in Limassol by the renowned saxophonist Giorgos Krasidis. Krasidis studied jazz tenor saxophone performance at Berklee College of Music and classical saxophone performance at Indiana University of Pennsylvania.

He doesn't have any social media accounts. Or an email address. He doesn't care for it and doesn't need it. When people need to talk to David Haddad, they just call Chloe Burns in Pittsburgh. Haddad himself? He's in Los Angeles, we're told. Then, maybe, New York City, Atlanta or Detroit. And, oh yeah, he's scheduled until next year. But he “will think about it,” when we inquire about an interview. Son of David Sr., a Syrian immigrant who, in Pleasant Hills, Pennsylvania, in 1954 had a modest vision: to open a mom-and-pop service station. The Amoco he opened would eventually house a car wash and a tow truck operation. None of which explains how David Haddad is sitting on top of Haddad's Inc., a multistate corporation that's worked with more than 3,000 film and TV productions around the world. Until he left for Indiana University of Pennsylvania, the station was where he cut his teeth. After graduation? Back to the family business.
