Puckish Psathas

NZ composer John Psathas applauded in the Guardian‘s review of his collaboration with the Netherlands Wind Ensemble in Bath. “This concert, entitled Zeibekiko, threw a puckish girdle round the world as … John Psathas explored his Greek heritage … This lively cultural exchange was in itself an ambitious undertaking, but Psathas further extended his parameters by spanning two-and-a-half-millennia: arranging fragments surviving from Greek antiquity, including a hymn to Apollo from Delphi, and, in his own piece, Maenads, conjuring the wild female Bacchantes worshipping the god Dionysius. It was an intoxicating collaboration.”
