Loris Margaritis (1895 - 1953)

Loris (Lykourgos) Margaritis (1894–1953) was born in Aigion, Achaia, Greece. He was a distinguished Greek composer, performer and music-educator. As an infant prodigy he won fame playing his own piano compositions at the age of nine in the Richard Wagner Concert Hall in Munich. Loris studied in Berlin and Munich and had associations with important personalities of the time, including Bernhard Stavenhagen, Joseph Joachim, Felix Mottl, Robert Kahn and Bruno Walter. After his return to Greece around 1915 Margaritis collaborated in Thessaloniki with Aimilios Riades, a pupil of Maurice Ravel, in the consolidation of the State Conservatory of Thessaloniki and its Symphony Orchestra. Loris Margaritis cultivated a new spirit of music—universalism, reinvestigating the delicate balance between German romanticism, impressionism, and a disengaged modernism in a multi-layered sound poetical context. He amalgamated the Hellenic experience of nature and European idealism with the universal demand for the expression of bucolic roots, dreamlike nostalgic rootlessness and a nexus of dramatic timelessness.
