Achilleus G. Chaldaeakes

The conductor

Born 1969 in Athens, Greece, he studied Theology and Musicology there. His graduate work was done in the School of Theology of the National and Capodestrian University of Athens. He received his doctorate from the Department of Music Studies of the same University [his doctoral thesis was entitled: The Polyeleos in Byzantine and post-Byzantine Melopoeia, Athens 2003, pgs. 992], where he was an academic assistant from the year 1992 and was elected Lecturer (the year 1999), Assistant Professor (the year 2004), permanent Assistant Professor (the year 2008), Associate Professor (the year 2010) and Professor of Byzantine Musicology for the same Department.

At the same time, he is the conductor of the choir of chanters “The Maestors of the Psaltic Art”; he also is the first chanter of a main church of Athens; he serves as general secretary of the Institution of Byzantine Musicology; he is a founding member and administrator of the urban non-profit company “Anatoles to Periixima”; he is a founding member of the urban non-profit Company the “Aiginaia” (and chief editor of the homonymous six-month periodical cultural publication for its 14 first issues have been published already); he is a scientific collaborator of the critical publication of the complete works of Saint Nektarios (of which 4 volumes have been published already) and a member of other scientific associations (for example, The International Society for Orthodox Church Music, American Society of Byzantine Music and Hymnology) and art organizations.

In addition, he is developing an international artistic route as a director, since he is quite often invited as a guest director from famous, outside Greece, choirs, which are relevant or not with the field of traditional Byzantine music. Therefore, he has already carried out relevant events in Europe and America, with great success and the accordingly positive echo. Here are his latest jobs: on the one hand, in Tallinn, Estonia, as a guest director of RAM - The Estonian Male Choir, in the scope of 16th  international festival Credo (Credo XVI. The International Festival of Orthodox Sacred Music. 24 September-4 October 2009. Estonia), where he was the Head of the famous fifty-member State Choir of Estonia in a programme of pure Byzantine Music, on the other hand, in Portland and Seattle of America, as a guest director of Cappella Romana, too. He introduced (January 2010) with the particular world-wide famous American choir a clearly Byzantine musical programme under the title "A Byzantine Christmas" (giving before each concert a pre-lecture).

He has published ten self-contained books and has coordinated the publication of as many collective volumes (conference proceedings, honorary volumes, etc.). Tens of other studies have been published in periodicals and other collections, while he is also a regular collaborator and consultant on Byzantine musicological entries in Encyclopaedias. He has participated in international musicological and theological conferences and seminars. His research activity orbits around the areas of Byzantine musicology, music folklore, Christian worship, hagiology and hymnology.
