On Saturday, 26 October 2019, the cultural section of the Cyprus High Commission organised the piano recital “In the Light of Music” by Cypriot pianist Nicolas Costantinou. The concert was held at the Hellenic Centre and was attended by His Excellency the High Commissioner of Cyprus, Mr Andreas Kakouris, who welcomed the audience and introduced the talented Cypriot musician.

 

In the first part of the concert, Nicolas Costantinou presented an impressive programme of classical music, including Sonata in C major by Wolfgang Amadeus Mozart, Sonatine M. 40 by Maurice Ravel and three pieces by Fryderyk Chopin. The second part of the programme comprised a selection of six preludes from contemporary Cypriot composer Constantinos Stylianou’s “Twelve Preludes, First Series (2008-2012)”, inspired by famous artworks by such painters as Mondrian, Turner and Klimt.

 

The concert was followed by a reception in which the audience had the opportunity to meet both Cypriot musicians, namely Nicolas Costantinou and London-based Constantinos Stylianou.
