About the work

Tzitzikes Tis Kritis

(Cretan cicadas)

During the hot summer days on Crete the sound of cicadas is overwhelming as they call to each other across the valleys.  It is particularly prevalent in the thousands of olive groves so common throughout Crete.  This piece takes the call of the Cretan cicada as its starting point.
