Greek composer Georges Aperghis, born in Athens in 1945 has lived and worked in Paris since 1963. In 1971, after a few instrumental pieces more or less inspired by serial techniques, he composes his first musical play La tragique histoire du nécromancien Hiéronimo et de son miroir (for two female voices: singing and speaking, a lute, a cello). This piece is at the root of much of his future investigations into the relationships between music and text, between music and stage. Thus, he takes part in the great adventure of musical theater that begun in France at the Festival d'Avignon. He went on to create La tragique histoire… (1971), Vesper (1972), Pandæmonium (1973), and Histoire de loups (opera, 1976) for the festival. Starting in 1976, Aperghis’s work is divided among three main areas: musical theater, concert music and opera.




I’m tremendously excited to think of young singers without direct access to classical music training using this application.

nkoda is really clever; it's like a view into the future of making music.
