Cinema Paradiso

Film music by Greek and Italian composers

In 2006, Nikos Kypourgos composed a homage to Manos Hadjidakis, entitled ‘Sweet Suite’, based on themes by the great composer’s music for nine of the almost total seventy-five films that constitute his film music oeuvre. The Thessaloniki State Symphony Orchestra recorded the ‘Sweet Suite’ along with another work by Kypourgos, the ‘Film Suite No.1’, in an interesting CD released by EMI Classics. The program of the concert continues with film music by two great Italian composers, Nino Rota and Enio Moricone, whose music sealed classical cinema masterpieces, such as The Godfather, La dolce vita, Nuovo Cinema Paradiso, The Untouchables etc

Την 1η Ιουνίου 1959 η Συμφωνική Ορχήστρα Βορείου Ελλάδος, που αργότερα μετονομάστηκε σε Κρατική Ορχήστρα Θεσσαλονίκης, έδωσε την πρώτη της συναυλία μέσα σε ένα κατάμεστο Βασιλικό Θέατρο, υπό τη μουσική διεύθυνση του καλλιτεχνικού διευθυντή της και ιδρυτή της Σόλωνα Μιχαηλίδη. Η Κ.Ο.Θ. του σήμερα, μία ορχήστρα που ξεπέρασε όχι μόνο τα γεωγραφικά όρια των ονομάτων της, αλλά και τα σύνορα της χώρας, παρουσιάζει το ίδιο ακριβώς πρόγραμμα, στο ίδιο μέρος, με τη νυν καλλιτεχνική της διευθύντρια, Ζωή Τσόκανου, στο πόντιουμ.
