Musikleben in Athen 1941-1944 : der Einfluss der deutschen und italienischen Besatzung / Petros Linardos.
Musical life in occupied Athens was very intense. The German and Italian forces had an interest in music, partly for its propaganda potential. Inflation, hunger, and the Greek resistance, restricted their cultural activities to the organization of performances for soldiers and members of the Axis-community, and the arrangement of a few guest appearances of German or Italian musicians. German support prevented the collapse of the two Athenian orchestras for financial reasons. Weekly concerts were well attended. The situation of these years was reflected in some Greek compositions, and above all in the revues.
