CALLIOPE TSOUPAKI - composerReview TRAGOUDI from "Het Parool" on June 11th (Erik Voermans)…."pièce de résistance at the concert is "Tragoudi," Calliope Tsoupaki's commission from the Holland Festival; an impressive double concert for clarinet and trumpet. The music is slow, lingering and diatonic (the Dorian scale is a favorite) and seems to bear the sadness of the entire world. A full Carré listened attentively for 25 minutes, deeply moved."
