A PROLOGUE TO THE TERPANDROS EXHIBITION EVAGORAS AND KATHLEEN LANITIS FOUNDATION

In the world of ancient Greece, a world that embodied a deep understanding of ele­ments such as the wind, the sand and the sea, and of nature in general, where every­thing was constantly moving and regenerating [Eraclitos, “Tα πάντα ρεί”, (everything flows)], the activity of the stars provided sound foundations on which logic could develop a reasoned perception of the Universe,^

Numbers and geometric reasoning facilitated the calculation of time and distance and were the key factors to understanding the mystery of the universe. The discovery of the existence of mathematical resonances that delighted our sense of hearing and touched our souls, corroborated the strength of their impact and link to the fundamentals of the Greek language.

The interrelated sciences of astrology, music, mathematics and reasoning were the building blocks upon which the model teachings on wisdom and modesty were founded, They ascertained the indisputable reality of the existence of cosmic harmo­ny, refuting the chaos of superficial and conflicting opinions.

It is in this spirit of ancestral reasoning that the tutor Michalis Georgiou set about to recreate these musical instruments, using the utmost technical accuracy and sensitivity while at the same time rendering his own individuality to this exceptional and unique endeavour.

It is precisely this accurately orchestrated balance that attracted the Lanitis Foundation and awakened the desire to present these unique musical instruments to the public through this exhibition thus highlighting and promoting the magnitude and sig­nificance of the research involved in this endeavor whose main objective was to preserve the timelessness of Greek reasoning.

We hope that the exhibition of these exquisite recreations by Michalis Georgiou at the Evagora and Kathleen Laniti Foundation, will enable the public to capture, reminisce and re-enact this ancient Greek musical tradition

Through this initiative, the Evagora and Kathleen Laniti Foundation, hopes to generate among the public a keen interest and enthusiasm in these ancient Greek musical instruments that are in effect the envoys of Greek civilization and as such are living proof that even  today the Greek spirit is the mirror of mankind on both the ecumenical and eternal dimensions.
