Notes de programme :
Kritikos Horos, or “Cretan Dance”, is a concert music reimagining of traditional dances and song forms originating from the Greek island periphery of Crete. In each movement, traditional thematic material is at first presented in recognizable form before undergoing stresses and procedures that gradually cause it to be subsumed into - and eventually obscured by - concert music idiom.

Drawing on the source material’s historical origins, the work traces an abstracted narrative of the life of a Cretan Resistance fighter during WWII:
I. Maleviziotikos, a sprightly courtship dance for village youths;
II. Erotokritos – "the judge of love" – a song type with mature overtones that logically follows from the more innocent dance preceding it;
III. Pentozali, a fast war dance used to keep soldiers fit for battle;
IV. Syrtos represents the warrior’s philosophical contemplation before engaging in war, and;
V. Tsakonikos, a labyrinthine war dance that depicts the myth of Theseus slaying the Minotaur.

This piece was finalist in the 2010 Alea III International Composition Competition. It was premiered by the Alea III Contemporary Music Ensemble, with conductor Theodore Antoniou, on October 3, 2010 at the Tsai Performance Center in Boston, MA. It received an Honorable Mention in the Society for New Music's 2012 Brian M. Israel Prize and was performed by Norrbotten NEO at the 2014 June In Buffalo Festival.
