A few words about the Gamelan Orchestra:

The Gamelan Orchestra, whose schedule had been abruptly interrupted due to the pandemic, continues this year its wandering across the traditional music of Java.  Led by composer Andys Skordis, it seeks new worlds of harmony through the unexpected encounter of the Gamelan musical tradition with the contemporary classical music repertoire.


A few words about Andys Skordis:

Andys Skordis was born in Cyprus in 1983. He is a contemporary music composer with a rich work including operas, symphonic works, chamber music, Gamelan pieces, music for theatre, dance and short films. He is also the founder of the contemporary musical ensemble “Patsiaoura”, plays guitar with the trio Monsieur Doumani, and is involved in free improvisation. He has gained many distinctions, the most recent of them being the Black Pencil Prize 2020. This year he is one of the two finalists for the Berlin Opera Prize 2022.
