Konstantia Gourzi

Thirteen years ago, Konstantia Gourzi was the second – after Dimitris Mitropoulos – Greek conductor to direct the New York Philharmonic in Beethoven’s Symphony No. 1, Brahms Symphony No. 3 and Tchaikovsky’s Symphony No. 4.
On September 11, 2011, the renowned composer and conductor gave her first globally performance of her work, Time Zero, in Opera Square in Munich. This work was commissioned by the Roman Catholic Archdiocese of Munich for the memorial concert held in Munich for the 10-year anniversary of the terrorist attack on the World Trade Centre in New York.
The event commenced with a brief greeting by Cardinal Reinhard Marx and continued with the performance of the scholar’s new work. Amongst the attendees were artists from Brazil, Germany, Greece, Morocco and the USA, members of the opus21musikplus ensemble and the Children’s Chorus of the Bavarian State Opera in Munich.
The world renowned Greek composer lives in Germany. She has taught at the Academy of Music in Berlin, and at present she conducts 20th century music ensembles in the University of Music in Munich.
