Celebrating the Metropolitan Museum's recent acquisition of four Byzantine icons, this performance traces the trajectory of music east from Byzantium. It also demonstrates the interconnectedness between Byzantine and Islamic chant and improvisation traditions through the remarkable playing of Mehmet Ali Sanlikol, master chanter Eleftherios Eleftheriadis, and the virtuoso Christos Chalkias.
