Account of "Frossini's" Compositions and Stagings

Research output: Chapter in Book/Report/Conference proceedingChapter


With the operas "Frossini", "Markos Votzaris", "Despo" and dozens of songs of national character, Pavlos Carrer as a composer lays “the groundwork for the Hellenic melodrama” and takes decisive steps toward the creation of an independent Greek music school. He is a typical case of the pan-European national music school. Just like his Russian, Bohemian or Scandinavian colleagues, Carrer also gives precedence to opera and vocal music which he considers as the appropriate musical vehicle, he turns to local colour and national subjects, choosing the plots of his operas from episodes from the recent Greek history, featuring local and national heroes.
