Manos Hatzidakis was a Greek composer and theorist of Greek music. He was also one of the main proponents of the “Éntekhno” form of music (along with Mikis Theodorakis). In 1960 he received an Academy Award for Best Original Song for his song Never on Sunday from the film of the same name. His very first work was the tune for the song “Paper Moon”, from Tennessee Williams’ A Streetcar Named Desire staged by Karolos Koun’s Art Theatre of Athens, a collaboration which continued for 15 years. In 1949 he co-founded the Greek Dance Theatre Company with the choreographer Rallou Manou. At this point, he began writing immensely popular “pop” songs and movie soundtracks alongside more serious works, such as 1954’s The C.N.S. Cycle, a song cycle for piano and voice recalling the German lied in its form, if not in style. In 1955 he wrote the score for Michael Cacoyannis’ film Stella, with actress Melina Mercouri, singing the movie’s trademark song “Love that became a double-edged knife”. Hatzidakis always maintained that he wrote his serious pieces for himself and his less serious ones to make a living. In 1958, Hatzidakis met Nana Mouskouri, his first “ideal interpreter”, a skilled vocalist who shaped the sounds of his music. It was 1960 that brought him international success, as his song “Never on Sunday”, from Jules Dassin’s film Never on Sunday, won him an Academy Award and became a worldwide hit.
