On June 4 at 16:00 pm Teti Kassioni & Ilias Papakonstantinou will present their newest album “Από Κάστανο και Έρωτα, De Marron et d'Amour, from Chestnut and Love”, in the centre of the Hague, at the beautiful Paleiskerk. The concert will be musically framed by Teti Kassioni in singing, Ilias Papakonstantinou in poetry, and the two soloist performers; Thymios Papadopoulos on clarinet and flute, who also created the album's entire orchestration, and last Giorgos Athanasiou on classical guitar.

Through music and musical poetry, the languages of Greek and French will collide. The album is a book originally written by Ilias Papakonstantinou that has been translated into French and musically arranged by Teti Kassioni. The beauty and wildness of Greece, the sea and its rocky landscape from which the poet draws part of his inspiration, formed the world and the nature of the songs that the audience will witness at the concert. The songs talk about the truth and the upliftment, trace social concerns, the love and the light.

Greek and French versions of the project's songs will be released for the first time. The meeting of Edith Piaf and the Greek composer Mikis Theodorakis, among fundamental pioneering examples of the musical coexistence of the French and Greek languages, will be played concurrently. In several songs, the Singing Birds Languages of The Hague's choral workshop participants will be on stage.

Partners of the concert are the Greek Embassy in the Netherlands, the French Institute of the Hague, the Association of Greeks in the Netherlands, Het huis Rotterdam, Atelier Evangelos, Menny's Kitchen, Pantopoleio,, SuperGreeks, the Beatstad radio, and the Greek School in The Hague. This project is an initiative of Singing Birds and is produced by Artists in Tune.
