Chamber music performance under a full moon at Ancient Corinth

The August full moon will be shining down on Ancient Corinth for a concert of classical music by the Altenberg Trio from Austria, under the auspices of the Culture Minister and held in cooperation with the Corinth Antiquities Ephorate and the Prefecture of Corinth, with the support of the Austrian Embassy. This chamber music trio, making their first appearance in Greece, is one of the few with a permanent base of piano, violin and cello. Founded in Vienna in 1994, its three musicians are from different countries but share the same love of classical music – its creator, the Austrian pianist Claus-Christian Schuster, the violinist Amiram Ganz from Uruguay, who displays his masterly technique on a rare violin made by Goffredo Cappa in 1696, and Polish cellist Alexander Gebert. Their repertoire includes over 250 works. On August 28, in a concert that is one of a series subsidized by the Loutraki Club Hotel and Casino, the program includes works by Beethoven, Schubert and Arnold Schoenberg, whose «Verklaerte Nacht» is one of the most difficult classical pieces that is rarely performed in Greece.
