Antoniou’s work for solo flute Lament for Michelle inspired my research. I will further analyze this piece in order to shape its historical background and the tradition of the lament, which remains vital in twentieth century Greek society.
Combining musical analysis and biography, I aim to prove how Theodore Antoniou utilized a plethora of nationalistic elements in his works for flute. In addition, I will point out these elements and explain how and why they are considered Greek. Overall, this paper will contribute to the understanding of Greek composers today and hopefully will motivate scholars and performers to do for further research into Greek music.
