Konstantia Gourzi (born in Athens/Greece, 31 March 1962)

Her portfolio of compositions includes not only operas, film music and works for music theatre and orchestra, but also numerous solo pieces and chamber music. Konstantia Gourzi’s musical work is documented in detail through radio recordings, television broadcasts and live streams. Recordings of her extensive discography were released at ECM, NEOS, NAXOS and SONY Classical.

Composer’s notes

The composition Drei Synapten zu Ehren der Seligen Gisela was musically processing the importance of Blessed Gisela and also of the three rivers for the city of Passau. Synapten are Greek forms of prayer, while the rivers represent carriers of historic and religious information.

The piece features three short movements that are not connected in the classical way. In the first movement melody and rhythm conflate. In the second movement certain elements are repeated and thus soundscapes resembling a ritual are created. The third movement is the shortest – like an aphoristic end.
