"People do not live forever, but their works remain and are now a common property of our country. So we are not talking about the death of Mikis Theodorakis, we are talking about his contribution to the nation and the homeland and the invaluable legacy he left behind " stressed among other things.

"Mikis crossed the border, left a unique legacy that will never be forgotten", said the well-known author who has associated his name with that of the great composer through the film "Z" which was based on his book and was shot by Costas Gavras in 1969.

Describing their first acquaintance with Mikis Theodorakis, Vassilis Vasilikos "returned" to 50s when "In the newly established building of the Society for Macedonian Studies, a concert was given by two young composers, Argyris Kounadis and Manos Hadjidakis, who played on two opposite pianos the play 'Greek Carnival' by the unknown composer Mikis Theodorakis. Later, in 1961, in Athens, a total of five people watched the theatrical adaptation of one of his plays. Then coincided the final return of Mikis to Greece "
