Notes

  • Program notes: 

    Ariadne in Greek mythology, was daughter of King Minos of Crete and his queen, Pasiphae, daughter of Helios, the Sun-titan.She aided Theseus in  overcoming the Minotaur (actually her half-brother) and was equally the bride of the god Dionysus.
    The music language of the work Ariadne, is based on twelve-tone series and modal elements. The style is characterized by tragedy, lyricism and drama. All these are achieved either by the way of orchestration or by the music language. For example a specific motif of a repeated note symbolizes the Labyrinth and Theseus agony to escape. At the same time, functions of orchestration lead to a culmination of drama through a simple motif core. Lyric music scenes are expressed through simpler orchestration using simultaneously modal elements
