After New York and the heart of Manhattan where she was invited to perform songs of Mikis Theodorakis, Betty Harlafti having “served” alongside the great Greek composer is bringing his work to Switzerland. With her, the acclaimed pianist Yannis Belonis, a close collaborator of Mr. Theodorakis and his Orchestra for the past few years. Their coexistence guarantees a unique and explosive artistic effect. The two artists, who are invited by the Hellenic Association of Lausanne Estia, will perform at Salle Paderewski in Lausanne a selection of works by Mikis Theodorakis. It will be an evening honoring one of the greatest living artistic personalities of the second half of the 20th century.
Betty Harlafti is the only artist of the younger generation who has been chosen by the composer to be close to him, in collaboration with his Orchestra, in recent years. She sings in various languages, a feature that will be highlighted in the upcoming recital.
The recital is part of a series of activities scheduled by the artist promoting her new album with works by Mikis Theodorakis and Yannis Belonis’ inspiring arrangements. The album will be released early in 2017 and is produced under the composer’s guidance.
