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.
For the SNFCC concert, Sokratis Sinopoulos Quartet will present its latest release along with numbers from their first album, in a spirit of improvisation and strong interplay.
Sokratis Sinopoulos, lyra
Yiannis Kyrimkyridis, piano
