The 2020 Piano Festival of the GNO Alternative Stage, a great celebration for the “king of the instruments”, returns for a fourth consecutive year with a unique tribute to Beethoven’s piano music, on the occasion of the 250th anniversary of his birth.

Ten celebrated Greek pianists in five evening recitals and four emerging soloists in afternoon concerts feature the great German composer’s 32 piano sonatas. The festival’s programme on the Alternative Stage is complemented with a special concert with works of Giorgos Koumendakis with references to Beethoven’s music.

At the Festival’smain concert, that will be held at the Stavros Niarchos Hall of the Greek National Opera, the GNO Orchestra and Chorus will accompany established soloists in three popular repertoire works: Concerto for piano and orchestra in D major, op. 61a; Triple concerto for violin, cello, piano and orchestra in C major, op. 56; Choral fantasy for piano, chorus and orchestra in C minor, op. 80.
