View from Olympus (Preview)

by John Psathas | Double Concerto for Percussion, Piano and Orchestra Commissioned by percussionist Dame Evelyn Glennie, View From Olympus (2001) is one of Psathas’s landmark works. This award-winning double concerto takes listeners on a journey through the world of Greek percussion styles and playing techniques. Its three movements feature an adapted transcription of improvised Greek violin music, a tender tribute to the composer’s children, and a depiction of the legendary Mænads celebrating their god Dionysos with song, music and dance.
