Biography Biographie
Music and Nothing
but Music
The development and career of
Mikis Theodorakis
Mikis Theodorakis is possibly the one contemporary composer in the world with an audience larger and more wide-ranging than anyone else, a unique phenomenon in the musical
life of our time. His popularity is mainly due to
two factors, his extraordinary talent for melody
and the sheer extent of his musical output.
His oeuvre comprises not only of around 1000
songs but of also more than 100 major compositions including chamber, ballet, theatre and
film music as well as symphonies, concerti and
operas which have been performed by internationally renowned conductors such as Thomas
Beecham, Dimitris Chorafas, Charles Dutoit,
Herbert Kegel, Dimitri Kitajenko, Zubin Mehta.
All these works continue to hold their place
within international concert repertoire to this
day.
Dispite the distinct nationalistic Greek element
in his music, characterized by Byantine, demotic and Cretan infludnese, Theodorakis is an
extremely cosmopolitan, liberal and outward
looking artist both in his music and thinking.
Among his favoured writers are international
authors such as Federico Garca Lorca, Brendan
Behan, Pablo Neruda and Martin Walser.
His diverse oeuvre also comprises of numerous
film scores (Honeymoon by Michael Powell,
Phaedra by Jules Dassin, Five Miles To Midnight
by Anatole Litvak, Zorbas the Greek by Michalis Cacojannis, Z by Costa Gavras, and Serpico
by Sidney Lumet) and his songs, which over
the past 40 years have been have been sung
by performers like Agnes Baltsa, the Beatles,
Dalida, Maria Farantouri, Mary Hopkin, Liesbeth List, Maria del Mar Bonet, Marino Marini,

Milva, Mouloudji, Georges Moustaki, Nana


Mouskouri, Edith Piaf, and Herman van Veen.
Theodorakis discography extends to around
about 300 titles many of which contain solely
recordings of his own songs and works. Youtube currently holds over 2,400 video featureing Theodorakis music and a Google search for
his name yields over 400,000 hits. How did this
tremendous popularity of an originally classical
composer come about?

Theodorakis 1937

Apprenticeship and rise of a composer


(1943-1959)
From the early 1940s, all the energies and aspirations of the then fifteen-year-old Mikis Theodorakis were directed toward one goal: to become a composer. Even the experience of war
(1941-1944), civil war (1944-1949), imprisonment and exile (repeatedly between 1946 and
1949) and forced recruitment in the early 1950s
did not discourage him from his plans. Theodo-

rakis life is that of a man possessed by music


who, notwithstanding the circumstances, has
always read and composed music. He completed his composition studies with Filoktitis Ikonomidis in Athens and graduated with distinction. His symphonic and chamber music works
have been performed regularly in Greece since
the early 1950s and also abroad from 1953. In
1954 he received a scholarship for additional
studies at the Paris Conservatoire with Olivier Messiaen (composition) and Eugne Bigot
(conducting) which he completed in 1958.
Almost all the chamber and symphonic works
written between 1948 and 1960 (including the
ballet Greek Carnival, Symphony No. 1 and the
First Piano Concerto Helicon) were performed
by the National Orchestra of Athens as well
as by other major orchestras in Paris, London,
Strasbourg and Rome. In 1957 an international
jury in Moscow headed by Dmitri Shostakovitch and Hanns Eisler awarded him the First
Composition Prize ahead of 240 other composers for his Suite No. 1. In 1958 the French
newspaper Le Figaro hailed Theodorakis as
the new Stravinsky, and Benjamin Britten
refered to him in several interviews as one of
the most talented new composers of Europe.
In 1959, on Darius Milhauds recomendation,
Theodorakis received the Copley Prize as Best
European Composer of the Year.
His ballet music finally made the international
breakthrough with Les Amants de Teruel (1958)
staring Ludmilla Tcherina at the Theatre Sarah
Bernhardt, Paris directed by Raymond Rouleau
and also with the undisputed success of Antigone (1959) at Covent Garden, London, with
choreography by John Cranko which was staged
more than 100 times and became part of the
repertoire of the Stuttgart Ballet in 1961.
The world of folk song (1960-1979)
In 1960 Theodorakis apeard to suddenly give
up his career as a symphonic composer, moved
from Paris to Athens and, for next twenty years,
occupied himself exclusively with what he
called contemporary folk song. For Theodorakis, this was at the same time a declaration of

his origins: Greece, Crete, the Hellenistic Asia


Minor. During this period, he disowned his
works written before 1960 which earned him
his reputation as a rising star in the realm of
classical music, and developed the aesthetics
of dialogue which were based on the amalgamation of poetry, song and social commitment.
This new aesthetic manifested itself artistically
in the composition of numerous songs and
large-scale oratorios which developed such
momentum that it triggered a cultural revolution in Greece in the early 1960s. In 1967,
after the military putsch, Theodorakis music
was banned. He was able to put up resistance
in illegality for four months, but was then arrested, tortured and imprisoned. Until his deportation to Paris in 1970, the composer again
had to endure house arrest, exile and second
prison sentence. Shortly after his release, he
set out on a worldwide tour with his music to
protest against the military dictatorship which
only ended with the fall of the junta in 1974.
Theodorakis returned to Athens immediately
and tried, although without success, to continue the cultural movement of the years before
1967.
Return to symphonic music,
discovery of the opera (from 1980)
In 1980 Theodorakis returned to his self-chosen exile in Paris after he again had to live with
artistic and political disillusions during and after
the time of the junta. This time he returned to
symphonic composition, picking up his compositional thread from the period before 1960.
He revised a number of his earlier works and
wrote several symphonies, choral works and oratorios as well as the operas The Metamorphoses of Dionysos (1984-1986), Medea (1988/90),
Electra (1992-93), Antigone (1994-1996), and
Lysistrata (2000-01). Within these lyric tragedies as the composer calls them, he combined
a Greek sound world referring to folksong-like
melodies with the Western European music
tradition that formed a genre that reflects the
composers personality, namely that of the melodist and symphonic composer.

Zum kompositorischen Werdegang
von Mikis Theodorakis

Theodorakis at the BBC Studios


London, 1958
Until 1998, when he stopped conducting for
health reasons, Theodorakis conducted concerts of his songs, oratorios and symphonic
works all over the world. He recorded his operas and many other works himself and in recent years has occupied himself with the publication of his complete oeuvre.
Despite overcoming massive political barriers,
Theodorakis has managed to create an unparalleled oeuvre in the field of both folk and
symphonic music, which delights, inspires and
motivates millions of people throughout the
world. His life and work are, without a doubt,
unrivalled in the history of culture and music
of our time.
Asteris Koutoulas
Translation: Esther Dubielzig

Mikis Theodorakis drfte der zeitgenssische


Komponist sein, der ber das weltweit grte
und breit gefchertste Publikum verfgt: ein
einzigartiges Phnomen im Musikleben unserer
Zeit. Zwei wesentliche Grnde fr seine Popularitt sind seine auergewhnliche melodische
Begabung und die erstaunliche Bandbreite seines Schaffens. Sein Werk umfasst neben etwa
1.000 Liedern ber 100 grere Kompositionen, darunter Kammer-, Ballett-, Theater- und
Filmmusik sowie Sinfonien und Opern, die
von so berhmten Dirigenten wie Thomas
Beecham, Dimitris Chorafas, Charles Dutoit,
Herbert Kegel, Dimitri Kitajenko, Zubin Mehta
aufgefhrt wurden und nach wie vor ihren Platz
im Konzertleben haben.
Theodorakis offenbart sich in seinem Schaffen
wie in seinem Denken als uerst kosmopolitischer Knstler trotz des ausgeprgt griechischen Elements in seiner Musik, die von
byzantinischen, demotischen und kretischen
Einflssen geprgt ist. Unter den von ihm favorisierten Textdichter finden sich internationale
Autoren wie Federico Garca Lorca, Brendan
Behan, Pablo Neruda, Martin Walser und viele
andere. Zu seinem vielschichtigen uvre gehren die Musiken zu zahlreichen Filmen (darunter Honeymoon von Michael Powell, Phdra von
Jules Dassin, Five Miles To Midnight von Anatole Litvak, Zorbas von Michalis Cacojannis, Z von
Costa Gavras und Serpico von Sidney Lumet).
Einzigartige Bedeutung kommt natrlich seinen
Liedern zu, die in den letzten vierzig Jahren von
zahlreichen und sehr unterschiedlichen Interpreten gesungen worden sind; genannt seien
hier Agnes Baltsa, die Beatles, Dalida, Maria Farantouri, Mary Hopkin, Liesbeth List, Maria del
Mar Bonet, Marino Marini, Milva, Mouloudji,
Georges Moustaki, Nana Mouskouri, Edith Piaf
und Herman van Veen.
Theodorakis Diskographie umfasst etwa 300
Platten- bzw. CD-Verffentlichungen, die aus-

schlielich seinen eigenen Liedern und Werken


gewidmet sind. In Youtube kursieren derzeit
ber 2.400 Videos mit seiner Musik, die Google-Suche zu seinem Namen ergibt ber 400.000
Eintrge. Wie kam es dazu, dass Theodorakis,
ursprnglich ein klassischer Komponist, eine so
einzigartige Popularitt erlangen konnte?
Lehrjahre und Aufstieg eines Komponisten
(1943-1959)
Ab Anfang der 40er Jahre war das Streben des
damals erst fnfzehnjhrigen Mikis Theodorakis auf ein einziges Ziel hin ausgerichtet: Komponist zu werden. Selbst die Erfahrung von
Krieg (1941 bis 1944), Brgerkrieg (1944 bis
1949), Gefngnis und Verbannung (wiederholt
zwischen 1946 und 1949) und die Zwangsrekrutierung zu Beginn der 50er Jahre brachten
ihn nicht von diesem Vorhaben ab. Theodorakis Biografie ist die eines Musikbesessenen,
der gleich unter welchen Umstnden immerzu Musik las und komponierte. Sein Kompositions-studium in Athen bei Filoktitis Ikonomidis schloss er mit Auszeichnung ab; seine
sinfonischen und kammermusikalischen Werke
wurden seit Anfang der 50er Jahre regelmig

in Griechenland und ab 1953 auch im Ausland


aufgefhrt. Im Jahr 1954 erhielt er ein Stipendium fr ein Zusatzstudium am Pariser Konservatorium bei Olivier Messiaen (Komposition) und
Eugene Bigot (Dirigat), das er ebenfalls sehr erfolgreich beendete (1958).
Fast alle zwischen 1948 und 1960 entstandenen
kammermusikalischen und sinfonischen Werke
(darunter das Ballett Griechischer Karneval, die
erste Sinfonie und das erste Klavierkonzert Helikon) wurden vom Staatlichen Orchester Athen
sowie von anderen groen Orchestern in Paris,
London, Straburg und Rom aufgefhrt. Im Jahr
1957 verlieh ihm eine internationale Jury unter
Leitung von Dmitri Schostakowitsch und Hanns
Eisler in Moskau den Ersten Preis fr Komposition fr seine 1. Suite; 240 Komponisten aus
aller Welt hatten bei diesem Wettbewerb ihre
Werke eingereicht. 1958 begrte Le Figaro
Theodorakis als den neuen Strawinsky, und
Benjamin Britten bezeichnete ihn in mehreren
Interviews als einen der talentiertesten neuen
Komponisten Europas. Im Jahr 1959 wurde
Theodorakis auf einen Vorschlag von Darius
Milhaud hin mit dem Copley-Prize als bester
europischer Komponist des Jahres geehrt.
Der internationale Durchbruch gelang ihm

schlielich mit seiner Musik zum Ballett Les


Amants de Teruel (1958, Theater Sarah Bernhardt Paris, Regie: Raymond Rouleau, Hauptrolle: Ludmilla Tscherina) sowie mit dem groen Erfolg des Balletts Antigone (1959, Covent
Garden London, Choreographie: John Cranko,
Bhnenbild: Rufino Tamayo, Hauptrollen: Svetlana Beriosova, Donald Macleray, Leslie Edwards, Rudolf Nurejew), das ber 100 Auffhrungen erlebte und 1961 auch vom Stuttgarter
Ballett ins Repertoire aufgenommen wurde.

Die Welt des Volkslieds


(1960-1979)
1960 brach Theodorakis scheinbar pltzlich
seine Karriere als sinfonischer Komponist ab,
zog von Paris nach Athen und beschftigte sich
zwanzig Jahre lang ausschlielich mit dem, was
er zeitgenssisches Volkslied nannte. Fr
Theodorakis war dies zugleich ein Bekenntnis
zu seiner Herkunft: Griechenland, Kreta und
das hellenistische Kleinasien. Sein Werk der
Jahrzehnte bis 1960, das ihm den Nimbus eines aufsteigenden Shootingstars im Reich der
klassischen Musik eingebracht hatte, negierte
er in dieser Zeit und entwickelte eine sthetik des Dialogs, die auf der Verschmelzung von
Dichtung, Lied und sozialem Engagement beruhte. Dieses sthetische Konzept schlug sich
in der Komposition vieler Lieder und groer
Oratorien nieder und entwickelte eine solche
Durchschlagskraft, dass dadurch in Griechenland Anfang der 60er Jahre eine kulturelle Revolution ausgelst wurde. 1967, nach dem Militrputsch, wurde das Spielen und Hren der
Musik von Theodorakis per Gesetz verboten.
Er selbst konnte vier Monate in der Illegalitt
Widerstand leisten, wurde dann jedoch verhaftet, gefoltert und eingesperrt. Bis zu seiner
Abschiebung 1970 nach Paris musste der Komponist erneut Hausarrest, Verbannung und einen weiteren Gefngnisaufenthalt berstehen.
Kaum wieder in Freiheit, begann er eine weltweite Tournee mit seiner Musik als Ausdruck
seines Protests gegen die Militrdiktatur, die
erst 1974 mit dem Fall der Junta zu Ende ging.

Theodorakis kehrte sofort nach Athen zurck


und versuchte allerdings ohne Erfolg , an die
kulturelle Bewegung der Jahre vor 1967 anzuknpfen.

Rckkehr zur Sinfonik, Entdeckung der Oper


(ab 1980)
1980 ging Theodorakis zurck ins selbst gewhlte Exil nach Paris, nachdem er whrend
und nach der Zeit der Junta knstlerische und
politische Desillusionen hatte erfahren mssen. Er wandte sich abermals dem sinfonischen
Schaffen zu, nahm den kompositorischen Faden
aus der Zeit vor 1960 wieder auf, bearbeitete
eine Reihe seiner frheren Werke neu und schuf
mehrere Sinfonien, Chorwerke und Oratorien
sowie die Opern Die Metamorphosen des Dionysos (1984 bis 1986), Medea (1988/90), Elektra (1992/93), Antigone (1994 bis 1996) und
Lysistrata (2000/01). In ihnen strebt er eine
Verbindung zwischen dem charakteristisch griechischen Klang und volksliedhafter Melodik mit
der westeuropischen Musiktradition an. Mit
der lyrischen Tragdie, wie er seine Opern
nennt, scheint Theodorakis das Genre gefunden
zu haben, das seiner kompositorischen Mentalitt der des Melodikers und Sinfonikers am
nchsten kommt.
Bis er 1998 aus gesundheitlichen Grnden seine
Dirigierttigkeit einstellen musste, gab Theodorakis weltweit Konzerte mit seinen Liedern,
Oratorien und sinfonischen Werken. Er nahm
seine Opern und viele andere Werke selbst auf
und beschftigt sich in den letzten Jahren mit
der Edition seines Gesamtschaffens. Es gelang
Theodorakis, allen extremen Herausforderungen des Schicksals trotzend, sowohl im Bereich
der Volksmusik als auch in dem der sinfonischen
Musik ein unvergleichliches uvre zu schaffen,
das weltweit Millionen Menschen begeistert,
inspiriert, motiviert. Seine Biographie und sein
Werk sind in der Kultur- und Musikgeschichte
unserer Zeit ohne Zweifel einzigartig.
