In addition, the program, especially for the Delphi Festival 2018, includes the work Kapetan Michalis based on the homonym novel by Nikos Kazantzakis.

The works will be interpreted by the distinguished pianists of the new generation Stefanos Thomopoulos and Thodoris Tzovanakis, accompanied by the baritone Dionysios Sourbis.

In his piano works, Manos Hadjidakis expresses a personal musical idiom conversing with the classical form by making reference both to classical composers and to Greek folk and the so called rebetika music.
