Granicus

Stavropoulos, N (2016) Granicus. [Composition]

Abstract

Granicus is the archaic name of a small river in northwestern Asia Minor, which was the site of Alexander the Great’s first major military challenge. The name is also used for one of Mars’ great valleys. The rhythms of antiquity, through tradition, inspire here the coming together of different worlds in space and time. The work was commissioned by and is dedicated to Alexander Pepelasis.
