Six Greek Dances for Piano & Oboe (Opus 45)
The original compositions in this book were inspired by the ancient Greek dances. Dance has played an important role in the society and life of Greeks throughout their history. In the ancient Greek societies, dance was held in high regard. Philosophers Plato (427-347 BC) and Aristotle (384-322 BC) wrote detailed descriptions of the dances. Dance, along with writing, music and physical exercise was basic to the education system and many authors praised its virtues for both body and soul. There are over 4000 traditional dances from all regions of Greece. There are also Pan Hellenic dances which have been adopted and performed throughout the Greek world and by international folk dance groups.
