Mauthausen and Other Songs of Humanity
City Recital Hall

30th April 2020
7:00pm to 9:00pm
Two great singers, Maria Farantouri from Greece and the Israeli tenor Assaf Kacholi, are making their first Australian tour together. Their songs tell of love and passion, of melancholy and gaiety, of courage and sorrow, of war and of true peace. Songs full of strength and humanity, which have travelled the world.
Maria Farantouri and Assaf Kacholi will also shine a bright light into the hall of sombre memories, with the songs from Mikis Theodorakis’ Ballad of Mauthausen. Seventy-five years after the liberation of the concentration camps at Auschwitz, Mauthausen, Buchenwald, Dachau, Bergen-Belsen and elsewhere, the two artists commemorate the suffering, but above all the longing for life and the dreams for the future of millions of people.
The Ballad of Mauthausen will be joined by a selection of Theodorakis’ most beautiful songs, including settings of poetry by Seferis, Elytis, Cavafy and Lorca. The concert is a tribute to Greece’s favourite composer, as he approaches his 95th birthday.
