The cultural and political history of the former Yugoslavia features large in this year’s Marchland. Greek guitarist Nikos Baroutsakis joins the conversation with a recital of music from the Balkans and the wider region, where Europe meets the Middle East. He’ll be playing pieces inspired by the folk culture of Armenia, the Balkans and Turkey. Carlo Domeniconi’s Variations on Uzun İnce Bir Yoldayım (I'm On A Long Narrow Road) - a Turkish folk song of pain and suffering - opens the programme. It is followed by Four Traditional Armenian Dances arranged for guitar by Iakovos Kolanian. Finally, a rare performance of Dusan Bogdanovic’s Six Balkan Miniatures, composed for and dedicated to, world peace during the Yugoslavian Civil War.
