24-29 May, 2022 : International Symposium Xenakis In Greece

On the occasion of the centenary of the birth of Iannis Xenakis, a large symposium of five days will be organized in the country where the Franco-Greek composer and architect grew up.

Organized by the Kapodistria University of Athens, the University of Paris 8 and our association Les Amis de Xenakis, this great event will present several concerts, conferences and even cultural excursions in the footsteps of Xenakis.

These events will take place in Athens, but also in Nafplio. The symposium will end in Mycenae on Xenakis’ birthday (May 29), where the Poyltope of Mycenae will be evoked.

Note that on the opening day of the symposium (May 24), unpublished works by the young Xenakis will be performed in Athens!

Stay tuned on the official website of Xenakis 22!
