Austria, Salzburg, University of Salzburg, Large Hall

15 October 2020, 20:00

The Department of Educational Sciences at the University of Salzburg, on the initiative of Professor Vassilios Baros – a specialist in educational research, is organizing the First Ernst Bloch Conference entitled “Utopia & Resistance” and invites Maria Farantouri to sing for democratic values, society and humanity: timeless and yet particularly timely issues not only in the context of today’s immigrants and refugees that cause xenophobia and nationalist upheaval but also in the context of recent fatal virus spread resulting in new data on human movement and living. In the light of her classical repertoire -songs by Mikis Theodorakis on poetry of the great Greek poets – Maria Farantouri sings songs by other Greek and foreign composers, such as Manos Hadjidakis, Dionysis Savvopoulos, Zülfü Livanelli.
