Mikis Theodorakis died

The most important Greek composer passed away at the age of 96

Greece is mourning today. The man who connected with the most important moments of its modern history, the inexhaustible composer and unpaid fighter, is no longer with us.

Mikis Theodorakis “left” at the age of 96 for the district of angels, leaving behind an invaluable legacy.

Mikis Theodorakis has written all kinds of music, from operas, symphonic music, chamber music, oratorios, ballet, and church choir, to music for ancient drama, theater, cinema, art-folk songs, and post-symphonic works.

At the same time, he has been associated with the politics and struggles of the Left in Greece, something for which he was imprisoned and exiled many times until he was granted amnesty by the Colonel’s Junta and escaped to Paris.
