Nikos Ordoulidis, Musicologist, Academic Scholar and Lecturer, Department of  Music Studies, University of Ioannina

 

Post-doctoral research funded by the State Scholarships Foundation of Greece (IKY) - January 2020 – December 2021, at the Department of Music Studies of the University of Ioannina. Supervisor: Associate Professor George Kokkonis

 

The basic aim of this research project is the highlighting of a special and unexplored aspect of the piano: its role outside of its usual context, which is what we usually call ‘classical music’. The project focuses on discography found in various musical realities within a broad geographical span (Eastern Europe, the Balkans, the Eastern Mediterranean, the Middle East and North Africa).
