Keywords: Dimitris Mitropoulos | Greek music | national music | music performing artists

As most important books on Dimitris Mitropoulos should be mentioned those by Apostolos Kostios, William R. Trotter and Takis Kalogeropoulos. Two other editions are also valuable: the correspondence Mitropoulos - Katy Katsoyanis, and the selected texts of the artist. Mitropoulos had difficult relations with his Greek colleagues, especially after his emigration to the United States of America in 1939. At the time when the most important Greek composers strove to create a national school of music he made it clear that he did not like the idea of national music. He developed a neutral or even indifferent attitude towards musical activities in Greece and rarely included Greek compositions in his repertoire.
