About

KOTTOS takes its name from an enchanting, dangerous giant of Greek mythology. The instrumental makeup of KOTTOS is unique: recorders from the lowest bass to the highest sopranino; a grand Russian Bayan concert accordion; the cello, which adds sounds from the avant-garde and Nordic folk music; and a Greek bouzouki adding Mediterranean colour and Celtic sonorities.

The songs and dances of European folk music inspired the late 19th- and early 20th-century composers featured on this album, from Bartůk to Vaughan Williams, and the journey takes us from the mountain tunes of Europeís northernmost tip to the melancholy songs of its easternmost reaches, to dances from its southernmost point.

The groupís eponymous debut album KOTTOS (2016) received the Listenersí Prize of the Danish Broadcasting Corporationís P2 station.

KOTTOS:
- Bjarke Mogensen (accordion)
- Pernille Petersen (recorder)
- Josefine Opsahl (cello)
- Christos Farmakis (bouzouki)
