This is the address of a new website, created on the initiative of Mikis Theodorakis himself. It offers an extremely rich and varied documentation, with over 3100 musical works, 18 videos, 130 poems, 72 musical analyses and an almost unbelievable number of articles and commentaries, especially on Greece’s years of crisis since 2008.
Mikis Theodorakis has dedicated this new jewel in the internet crown to us. He writes:
I begin my introduction to this new site with a thought for my good friend Guy Wagner, who for many years has been the driving force behind the official website devoted to my life and work, a testimony to his great love and esteem. By means of the site, he has defended my work and reputation like no one else, with perseverance and courage – and that at a very difficult time for me, my ideas, my art and my political action.
I would therefore like to dedicate this new site to him, telling him I look on it as an “annexe” to his, which will always remain the first, the “official” website. My aim is for the new site to play a complementary role.
Mikis Theodorakis doesn't get rid of his health problems. On this 20th February, he was again hospitalized. Again he is suffering from a pneumonia, which is worse than that of Christmas 2013 and which is associated with high fever. On the urgent advice of his doctors, he was transferred to the hospital where he is now under constant medical control. We wish a prompt and full recovery.
22.2. People close to Theodorakis have declared that he is in a stable condition.
Mikis Theodorakis left the hospital on this first of March.
Mikis Theodorakis, who has been on a rant against the government and the country’s international lenders, has rebuffed a suggestion from PASOK Socialist chief Evangelos Venizelos, who’s also Deputy Premier/Foreign Minister, to be a candidate for Greek President, a position which is filled by the Parliament.
