The Greek Chamber Music Project



Biography

The Greek Chamber Music Project (GCMP) performs classical music by Greek composers, shedding new light on little-known works, as well as visiting familiar songs. Each concert presents a mix of Western classical works, as well as Greek folk and popular (laïká) songs, evoking nostalgia for the familiar and excitement for the new. But no work purely fits into a particular style — the popular songs are lyrical with a stylized, art song feel, while the classical selections are influenced by distinctly Greek scales, modes, and dance rhythms.
