#snfccAtHome Jazz Chronicles: Sokratis Sinopoulos Quartet - Metamodal (recorded concert) - Εικόνα

Listen to the recorded concert as part of the Jazz Chronicles series  here.

The recording will remain available on the SNFCC website.

Nurtured by Greek traditional and Byzantine music, enriched by elements of classical music and improvisation, steeped in jazz and contemporary music, the unmistakable sound of Sokratis Sinopoulos Quartet combines the primeval sound of the lyra and the piano trio.

Formed in 2011, the quartet first began by performing its own versions of music from the Greek traditions before focusing on original compositions. This material was released in Eight Winds, in 2015, followed in March 2019 by the quartet's sophomore release, Metamodal.

At the SNFCC concert in May 2019, Sokratis Sinopoulos Quartet presented its latest release along with numbers from their first album, in a spirit of improvisation and strong interplay.


The concert featured original compositions by Sokratis Sinopoulos:

  • Walking (album Metamodal)
  • Yerma (album Eight Winds)
  • Street Dance (album Eight Winds)
  • Dawn (album Metamodal)
  • Thrace (album Eight Winds)
  • Lyric (album Eight Winds)
  • Metamodal I - Liquid (album Metamodal)
  • Metamodal II - Illusions (album Metamodal)
  • Transition (album Metamodal)
