Listen to “The First Governor”. The new track dedicated to Ioannis Capodistrias. A Greek statesman, one of the most distinguished politicians and diplomats of Europe. After a long and distinguished career in European politics and diplomacy he was elected as the first head of state of independent Greece (1827–31). He is considered the founder of the modern Greek state and the architect of Greek independence.
Armagos has been working on “West & East”, a collection of pieces for piano and the traditional greek cretan lyre, in addition to the music for two operas: “The disgrace of Cyclops” (libretto: Yannis Filias) and “Bluebeard” (libretto: Xenia Rodotheatou).
His recent works include the composition of the music for the play “The Dragon” by Evgeny Schwartz (direction: Ioanna Bakalakou) which was presented the summer of 2019 in Athens/Greece.
