Musical pieces by Greek composers in Venice like Leontarides and De Laudis will also be included in the programme. The journey to Venezia nel Oriente e Cipro will conclude with works by Martoretta and parodic Greghesche in pseudo-Greek dialect.  

The concert will take place in the premises of the Leventis Municipal Museum of Nicosia on Wednesday the 13th of March 2019, 19.00 and will be repeated on Thursday the 14th March at the same time and place. The event is organised within the framework of the Museum’s temporary exhibition “Nicosia: the birth and growth of a capital. Byzantine and Medieval period”.
