Mikis Theodorakis became a symbol of resistance to the dictatorship in Greece, from 1967-1974. To the Greeks he was already a legendary figure. He had been imprisoned and tortured for his political beliefs, his music had been banned, his concerts broken up by right-wing gangs. He was a member of parliament, the leader of a powerful youth movement and the most popular composer in the country. Gail Holst, who played in Theodorakis's orchestra in 1975, first became associated with the composer through her work with Greek-Australian anti-Junta organizations. Since then she has followed Theodorakis's career and musical development closely. The result is a detailed study of the music of Theodorakis and of the complex interrelationship between his music and Greek society and politics.
