Pianist Danae Dörken is embarking on a musical journey: on April 22, 2022, her new album "Odyssee" will be released by Berlin Classics. The repertoire is a varied selection and leads the listener through different eras. Among them are well-known classics by Franz Liszt or Felix Mendelssohn-Bartholdy, but also works that the pianist associates with her Greek origins, for example by Manos Hatzidakis and Vangelis. "Odyssee" is about traveling, wandering and dreaming. "The Odyssey has fascinated me from a very young age. Even as a child, it was read to me as a bedtime story by my grandparents, " Danae Dörken says. She knows the various stages of the journey inside out. "For me, it's a very current story. I think we're going through a modern odyssey. That's what I want to show with this album."
