CALLIOPE TSOUPAKI - composerWow, I was called a young composer in the Dutch newspaper NRC! More important, Joost Galema wrote that my 'Salto di Saffo' (which premiered on Saturday, October 6 in the Concertgebouw Amsterdam) is a classic already. So grateful for the five stars! The review (in Dutch) here>>
And the other great news is that you can hear the performance here>>

Review 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."
Some photos from the premiere of Tragoudi on June 8th!
