Nights of Classical Music

Nights of Classical Music at the Gennadius Library, August 21-22 & 24-25

ASCSA, Cotsen Hall, 9 Anapiron Polemou, 106 76 Athens


Presented by

Gennadius Library, Schwarz Foundation, Curtis Institute of Music

 

On August 21-22 and 24-25, the Schwarz Foundation in collaboration with the Gennadius Library of the American School of Classical Studies organize the festival Nights of Classical Music at the Gennadius Library, hosting important musicians of the famous Curtis Institute of Music, who will perform musical masterpieces.

A new festival is born through the special partnership of three high-level institutions. The intercultural perspective of the Schwarz Foundation meets with the long tradition and august history of the Gennadius Library and the celebrated Curtis Institute to animate the cultural landscape of Athens, right in the interval between summer and autumn, a period of silence just before the beginning of the new season.

These high quality concerts will be hosted in Cotsen Hall, the auditorium of the American School of Classical Studies at Athens, in one of the most wonderful Athenian gardens.

Nights of Classical Music at the Gennadius Library... A great way to say goodbye to summer and welcome autumn, a musical epilogue with familiar rhythms, favorite tunes, timeless melodies and special guests from the world music scene.
